I am not sure that this is the proper forum.

 

I want to see sample query letters which kindled an agent's interest.

 

However, I cannot find any queries on here for either Memoirs or Non fiction.

 

I would be really appreciative if anyone were to:

 

a) reply with a query letter for non fiction or memoirs

 

or 

 

b) refer me to sites where I can find query letters for non fiction or memoirs

 

Thanks a lot for your help

Nessa, are those in fact the title of books that contain successful query letters or book proposals.
