Call me sadistic, but I never get tired of reading, crafting, and evaluating queries. There’s something beautiful about taking 70,000 words and condensing it down to three paragraphs or even 140 characters.

Slush Pile Permit

$25

After zillions of revisions, you aren’t even sure your query is in English. Three years evaluating queries in four slush piles has given me keen insight into what makes a reader sit up and salivate for pages. For a Slush Pile Permit , I will do three passes on your query or back cover copy (for those self-publishing).

Pitch Perfect

$40

With the Pitch Perfect package, I will work with you on any pitch you have, from a verbal conference pitch to a twitter hook to a full on query to your back cover copy. The best part? This is an unlimited package. You can come with a conference pitch and a twitter hook and a full on query and back cover copy, and I will go through as many rounds of critique as you’d like on each.

Submission Package

$60

In addition to the query, there’s that darn synopsis and those ever-important first pages to worry about. The Submission Package includes one thorough line edit to give your first ten pages a spit shine, as well as unlimited critiques on your 2-page synopsis and your query letter.

* Self-publishing option : first ten pages, up to 2-pages of excerpts, and back cover copy
