Dear INSERT AGENT NAME:
I’m the author of the first book of a four book YA adventure series. A mid-sized independent publisher has already offered me a contract, but I’m looking for representation to pitch the series to a top-flight publisher.
The first novel, THE KING’S PLAN, is 92K words of young adult fantasy. Subsequent books of the series will be approximately the same length (I’m already well into writing the second book). The series follows a young woman who believes herself to be forgettable . . . until tragedy takes the life of her odd and reclusive father. It is only then that she discovers both his secret and the fact that she is magical. In the end, after a series of often-terrifying adventures on two warring islands, Rori discovers that she is, in fact, entirely unforgettable. In the process, she finds her loyalties — to her best friend and to her principles — regularly tested.
THE KING’S PLAN is a book of magical events, sudden violence, betrayal, loyalty and honor.
As the Canterbury Scholar for Santa Clara University, I completed THE KING’S PLAN under the supervision of my mentor, author [prefer's to remain unnamed on this site], After 36,000 edits and with the help of a hired copyeditor, we were able to present THE KING’S PLAN as the final project of my college career. Even before graduation, I had received my first contract offer.
If you find this interesting, I will be happy to send you the manuscript in any format you desire.
I look forward to your reply.
With best regards,
