Could you write a query letter yourself?
It's possible, but there's a huge learning curve. And getting a second opinion about what makes your manuscript marketable is invaluable.
What do query letter clients say about our work?
QueryLetter.com did such wonderful work with my memoir's query letter package. My core thoughts were well written in the synopsis and chapter outline. I felt so lucky to work with Michelle and the rest of the team. Before submitting my draft, I was so worried because I was navigating publishing for the first time. However, I am so satisfied with the work and recommend it more than 100%."

Most writers would agree that writing a synopsis is by far the worst part of writing a novel. Many would rather write another whole novel than distil one down to a single page. So the people at QueryLetter.com are certainly offering a much desired service by taking that pain away. It was thrilling to see how someone else had drawn out the key points of my novel, and they were able to pin down the important elements for a synopsis in a way that I was struggling to.
