My name is Felicia and I'm an upcoming writer. I finished my first novel manuscript and I'm in the process of getting it edited. All I need is help on writing my Query letter because I'm not sure if the best way for me to go about doing this is getting it published by a publishing company or self-publish it myself.

Whether you should go the self publishing or traditional publishing route depends on many factors. See an overview of publishing paths here:  https://www.janefrie...ublishing-path/

Hi Felicia! I'm new as well and also just finished my manuscript! I've done a lot of research on traditional publishing vs self publishing and there appear to be pros and cons to both. I think self-publishing works if you've got the money and the time to self market and really push your novel. I plan to try for the traditional route myself because I've got no clue what I'm doing! Post your query in the query critique thread, I'm curious to see it and you can get feedback there! By the way congratulations on finishing it's such a big accomplishment!

If you have time I would love feedback on my query: http://agentquerycon...-back/?p=356112

If you could spare a moment I would really appreciate critiques on my synopsis: http://agentquerycon...ntasy/?p=355669
