Okay, this is SO important. No kidding around here! (Well…I might a little…) but when you are looking for an agent to represent your work it is crucial that you write a catchy query letter- no, I don’t mean  be snarky and suave. I mean do your research and learn what to include in the letter and what NOT to include.

Did you know there are several things that will make an agent hit “delete” and move on to the next query? Wouldn’t you like to know what those are so you can avoid them? This link will take you to a reputable source who will teach you the ins and outs of writing that letter and doing it well. Check it out!

About Katie Thayne, Author

Katie Thayne (that's me, kind of, seeing as how Katie Thayne is a pen name) is an up and coming author (or so I'd like to think). I have just released my first book, Ms. Impractical Pants, and am currently working on its sequel. I don't have a name for that one yet, so let's just call it Sequel for now. If I'm not working on Sequel, I'm scratching down ideas for the other half dozen or so book ideas swirling around in my brain. Okay, that's a lie, I don't write them down as much as I should, but I still think them, so that should count for something, right? I live in beautiful Moab, Utah and when I'm not writing- on second thought, I won't go there. Let's pretend I sit in a quite office hunched over a keyboard and do nothing but write. The most important thing to know about me, is just because I write doesn't mean I can punctuate. That's why I have an editor- but not for this blogging stuff. Editors ain't cheap and I'm not J.K. Rowling...yet. But I hope that won't keep you from reading my blog.
