Why is the query letter the hardest thing to write about the book? It took me three years to write it another to edit it and I still can’t nail down the query letter. I feel like I’m pounding my head against the wall. I have read many a fine book on how to construct the perfect query, I’ve bookmarked a dozen or so sights on the do’s and don’ts of queries. I’ve even posted it here for critique.

I haven’t gotten any takers for the story. I don’t think it’s the story itself but my query. I don’t think the hook or the blurb are strong enough. I know it needs to be interesting and pull people to want to read more and ask for the ms. I’m just not sure what words to use.

Sorry for whining, it’s just my frustration showing…

ARRRGGGHHH!
