This query is so unprofessionally done that I find it very hard to believe that any agent actually read it in its entirety.

 

I'm not sure if you are being serious or sarcastic, but I agree with you in a small way.

 

The query doesn't follow a rigid structure and yet it works. I think that the opening pages had the magic.

 

Congrats to the OP though.

What surprises me is how long it is. I thought queries had to be one page. That is interesting.

However, your story sounds bomb. Congrats!

I suppose you're aware that your novel is being released on the 20th anniversary of Judgement Day. That's pretty darn cool.
