The query letter
This letter is directed to you requesting your interest in my book proposal. I chose you because you said on Publishers Marketplace:
My ultimate project wish list would include a romantic historical fantasy, a literary, Beat-like coming-of-age, a thrilling survival tale with well-researched, back-to-the-land details, and a dark, witchy novel with an original mythology.
All of that describes my exhaustively researched and passionately written book, Taurseus: The Last of the Nephilim
. It is a romantic, historical fantasy about a Nephilim coming of age and power. It is a tale of his thrilling survival, and his desire to preserve the Earth from another global destruction. There is much power/magic/witchcraft—whatever you want to call the unexplainable. Taurseus explains it this way:
My strength does not derive from within myself. My mind instinctively knows how to absorb it from every atom around me. I can feel it draw in me like wind and expel out like fire.
Taurseus unites forces with his mythological companions, Charla, his pegasus, and Anak the dragon tamer in search of the Nephilim Journals—with hope this knowledge will be secure in the right hands.
Brimming with vivid historical detail, Taurseus, the son of a Seraph, or fallen angel, searches for the peace of mankind and the Earth's redemption. Realizing there are evil adversaries that could destroy the living, Taurseus vows to uncover the sacred wisdom that can save the world.
If you sell this book to the agency, you can have your ultimate project. I have attached the first five pages for your review. Your time is greatly appreciated, and I hope to hear from you soon.
