I've written hundreds of versions of a query letter for this novel. Hundreds. The ones that I've sent haven't worked for me. I know that I'm trying to promote a project that isn't much in demand these days:
a literary novel. About ten years ago I had a prominent editor offer his help free of charge. He thought the writing was audacious and fresh. We weren't a good match as editor/writer. The relationship turned strange.
This latest query letter is, I know, a bit too long. But I think it's pretty good. What do you think? Really.
Help me out, fellow writers.
