And the reason is that most query-writing books are heavy and soooooo serious. But in "The Writer's Digest Guide to Query Letters" Wendy Burt-Thomas tackles query writing from all angles--for articles, for nonfiction books, for novels, and for agents--with a sense of humor that is not only refreshing, it's good medicine. TWDGTQL is a reference shelf must for writers of all levels of experience. You won't get half-way through the book before you are putting it down (nearby) so you can jot down that query letter you've been MEANING to write but just hadn't gotten around to. And if you are one of the many writers intimidated by query-writing, all I can say is, read this book first. Yes, Wendy Burt-Thomas has probably written a million queries by now and this may be your very first. But her attitude to just do it and have fun with it is contagious. So have a ball writing queries...I promise you will after you read this book.
