Hi Cloudies,

I've stumbled my way to this website where authors post the query letter which led to successful representation with an agent - and some less successful one. Seems a pretty good resource to get a sense of what a good query letter should look like.

NB: I think these are "American style" pitches - may be a little different for pitching to UK agents, but still, you'll get the gist...

It's wild across the Pond, isn't it? And does anyone write anything except SciFi/Fantasy?

Nonetheless the detail of these letters is something to marvel at, as is the length. They are mini stories in themselves.
