A good query letter keeps it short and sweet and hooks your target audience into wanting more! Let BlurbCopy help you craft the blurb/summary portion of your query letter.
Dear Editor of My Dreams:
[Introduction]: I am seeking representation for my historical romance novel, A Pocketful of Ashes, complete at 93,000 words.
When Jessa Palmer journeys to rescue her late half-sister’s daughter from a tyrant of a father, she discovers someone—or something—wants to ensure she is no more successful at escaping the castle on the cliffs than her half-sister, Lily, had been.
Launched on her rescue mission by a mysterious letter, Jessa follows in Lily’s footsteps to a grim castle in the wilds of Cornwall and into the arms of its dark master, Captain Dashiell Tremayne. Bitter, brooding, and tragically scarred, he believes Jessa is a carbon copy of her manipulative, unfaithful half-sister; he’s not about to let another treacherous woman into his home—or into his heart.
When the accidents begin, the danger intensifies, as does the heat between Jessa and Dash; soon, she’ll have to make a choice—follow Lily to a fiery death, or surrender to a man she cannot trust.
[Bio]: I am a former project manager and author of software technical manuals. I am a member of the Romance Writers of America, including the Kiss of Death chapter.
[Outro]: I can be contacted any time at [insert your contact info]. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.
