Writing the Query: One-hundred-and-some samples from Miss Snark

If you've not formed an acquaintance with Miss Snark, the Literary Agent it's high time you did, especially if you've been slaving over query letters and opening pages. The Divine Miss Snark ran another Crapometer contest, inviting her readers to send in a query and the first page of their novels for her commentary, and from over 450 qualifying entries, she randomly selected just over 100 of them. Hurry over and have a look.

For those who didn't get selected for a thorough snarking, Evil Editor has opened a Lottery Loser Query blog, providing even more examples of what to do and what not to do.
