BK Magazine Write Right
Posted by Michael Larsen, Literary Agent, Larsen Pomada Literary Agents.
Mike is a literary agent eager to find nonfiction books that will excite big and midsize houses: self-help, business, popular culture, biography, current affairs, history, medicine, spirituality, technology, the future, etc.
Agent Katharine Sands believes that the writing you do about your writing is as important as the writing itself. A query is a one-page, single-spaced letter with three or four indented paragraphs with a space between each of them. Without being self-serving, it explains why, what, and who: the hook, the book, and the cook:
1. The Hook: whatever will best justify reading your work
2. The Book: the essence of your book
3. The Cook: Why you’re the person to write the book
These elements are building blocks for you to assemble in the most effective order. Front-load the letter by putting what is most impressive as close to the beginning as you can, and include anything else that will convince agents or editors to ask to see your work. Get feedback on your letter, and someone proofread it.
