Q is for Query Shark

If you are in the trenches of sending query letters to agents, you need to check out this website: 


  1. I love reading Query Shark's blog. Haven't in ages though, as I'm not at querying stage.

    I often wish she would "sharkify" my manuscripts for me. haha

  2. A great source for writers, I have given your blog a shout out from my today

  4. I honestly don't think there's a better place to learn about query writing than from QueryShark. I've learned so, so much from reading through the archives -- not just about query writing, but about writing in general.

  5. It's been a while since I've read Query Shark, but I remember enjoying it and learning a lot.
