The Query Letter.  Its name strikes fear in the hearts of writers.  We shun it. We crumple it.  We procrastinate on its content.  We cry…maybe.  But some of us get it right and realize our dream of someday becoming not just a writer but a Published Author.   And all the nail biting, late night screen-staring and odd dreams of sinister publishers with red fountain pens, finally pay off.

Luckily, one of our own knows all about that and wants to walk us novices through the entire nightmare.
