So I am on another writers forum (gasp!) with the various versions of my query, and there they insist that a query is short, short, short! Above all else, that is key. and I'm not even talking the suggested 250 words --- I'm talking 100 words max for the hook and summary (singular) paragraph.
I know everyone has different opinions on this matter, and agents will also respond to different queries differently, but this seems like pushing it into the realm of not-enough-information.
Have any of you come across resources that validate this argument? I know that I push the longer queries to cut down on length, but this seems excessive.
