Will not be needing comments for a bit! Thanks for all the help! <3
Hello all! I'm having the worst time trying to write this query. I have no idea what I'm doing. Every time I redo it, I feel like it is too vague/not really saying what I want it to say. I need help. Lots of help. :(
Dear (Agent Name)
I am sending my query to you in hopes that you will consider representing my novel, RECONDITE, a NA modern fantasy novel, complete at 93,000 words. I have specifically chosen you because (insert personal tidbit here). I have included (whatever they asked for) of my novel for your consideration. If you would like a larger sample, or the entire manuscript, you may contact me using the information below my signature.
New York City is breeding a terrifying secret.
In an underground Compound, two babies were born. One boy. One girl. She was to be the Generational’s heir; he was branded as a Recondite. Based on an ancient system focused on duty and paying back debts, their fates were inevitably sealed….
But one always has a choice.
20 year old Liam is running out of time and he knows it. The disappearance of his sister was his first clue; defaulting on his debt was his second. Not wanting to wait for a third, it’s time for Liam to choose: continue to risk default or find a way out. Determined to find his sister, he sets his sights on the only person that can help him get what he wants: the heir.
Sahar Ihsan lived 20 excruciating years under the magnifying glass of her community. The rules were simple: protect the community and in turn, the community will protect you. Desperate to break free from their scrutiny, Sahar allows herself one night to shatter all the rules. But everything goes terribly wrong. In a single breath, Sahar’s world collides with Liam’s at neck splintering speeds when she finds herself taken and thrown into Liam’s plan to break free from the Generational.
Sahar is on the fight for her life until she discovers the horrifying secret her community has kept hidden from her. Riddled with half answers and incomplete truths, Sahar trusts no one and seeks out her answers in the most unexpected places, starting and ending with the men she was never meant to meet.
One boy. One girl. Two lives forbidden to cross until destiny forces its way in.
RECONDITE is the first of a potential thrilling trilogy about love, family, and the power of choice. RECONDITE is intended to attract readers who also enjoy Veronica Roth’s DIVERGENT and Marie Lu’s LEGEND.
This is my first completed novel. I have never been published, but like the protagonist, one always has a choice and I have chosen to follow my dreams in becoming an accomplished writer. I currently live in Philadelphia.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
