Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my query letter! I'd love any recommendations or comments you might have.
Dear [AGENT NAME],
Personal tidbit or…straight into it
Brynn always assumed she’d be cryogenically frozen for her future spouse — after all, four out of five people are. Instead she’s linked with Matthew, the first boy ever frozen for the Linking System. Unfortunately, Matthew didn’t want to be frozen in the first place, and makes it clear he’s not interested in conforming to present-day society.
Unsure if she’s motivated by justice or her growing feelings for Matthew, Brynn commits to helping him find the truth of the Linking System — the truth he attempted to reveal 400 years ago, before his father cryonically silenced him. If Brynn and Matthew fail to uncover answers in time, Matthew will be hanged for treason, and Brynn will be frozen. If they expose the truth, she may lose Matthew, along with her chance at true love.
With the help of the Romantics, the rebel group fighting against the Linking System, Brynn and Matthew uncover the answers they need, proving to the nation, as well as themselves, that love is more than a genetic link.
FROZEN IN TIME (89k), my young adult science fiction novel, is suited for fans of Lauren Oliver’s DELIRIUM and Beth Revis’ ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. FROZEN IN TIME functions as a standalone novel but has series potential.
I am a member of the SCWBI and an Educational Consultant for Usborne Books & More. FROZEN IN TIME is my first novel; however, I have also completed and am querying a picture book for new mothers. My primary interest is in young adult science fiction and fantasy.
I would be happy to send you a full or partial manuscript at your convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.
