Query Letter instructions:

Prepare a Synopsis and Query Letter
Write a one-page synopsis of your book. This should sound a little like what you read on the jacket cover of a book, summarizing the plot. Then write a QUERY letter to accompany the synopsis. The letter should include:
 a brief paragraph about the book, saying that it’s fiction or nonfiction and giving a one or two sentence description
 a paragraph saying who you think the audience for the book will be
 a paragraph or two about you, that is, a short bio, including any writing you’ve published and anything that makes you an expert on the subject
 a paragraph telling the agent just what you have to show, e.g., a completed manuscript, three chapters and an outline, or a proposal
