This really wasn’t intended as a Query Letter, per-se, but as an interesting perhipheral exercise. I am shortly going to go back and incorporate the ‘flyleaf’ concept in the actual query letter.
On an unrelated note, I had an interesting idea this morning. The back cover of virtually every novel (and actually, many front covers) is littered with testimonials. You know… phrases like “I couldn’t put it down” and “Amazing character details” etc. etc.
Is there any reason why one should not include a set of testamonials in a query letter?
