I am looking to receive some helpful feedback on a query letter for my science fiction/fantasy novel. All thoughts and comments are appreciated!
Dear (Agent/Agency Name),
A centuries-old war has rendered Earth uninhabitable and left humans on the verge of extinction. Even after the Turpis were defeated in the Battle of Europa, humanity remains on the edge of a knife. When the aliens returned 200 years later, humans were out of options, so they fled.
After a tragic fall left her body broken, Myzer was forced into a life she never wanted—the life of a superhuman cyborg. With over seventy percent of her body comprised of fabricated materials, Myzer struggles to maintain a grasp on her humanity. But as the chosen leader of the military, she makes it her mission to save mankind, hoping it will make her feel human again.
At 97-thousand-words, Into the Void is the first of a four-book space fantasy saga. It is the journey of a young woman who sets out to save humanity only to find that she is incapable of saving anyone until she learns to accept the life that she’s been dealt.
I’ve been creating stories since my childhood days. Ever since I started writing Myzer’s tale three years ago, I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life as a writer. I have attended several conferences where I have received encouraging pointers on the Into the Void saga.
I appreciate your time and consideration. If you are interest in reading more, I will gladly send you the completed manuscript. I look forward to speaking with you soon!
