The query letter
I am seeking representation for Book Title, a completed 72,000-word romantic suspense novel set in Minnesota.
On her 18th birthday, Cassandra thought she had been able to escape from a childhood of abuse. She thought she had found the “perfect” husband. But soon after the birth of their twins, she begins to see another side of him that he’d been hiding, even from their closest friends and family.
Surviving a turbulent marriage that almost kills her, Cassandra is finally convinced to file for divorce. She takes the twins and heads deep into the woods, to a cabin where no one will find them. Little does she know that they are being followed.
In 2009 I graduated from the Blank Writing School; Book Title is a recipient of the 2010 Editor’s Choice Award from Blank.com. I use the pen name of Pen Name.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to the opportunity to share the entire manuscript with you.
