Heard from Suzie. She said the good news was that she received my query...
...wah wah waaaah.
The bad news was that she is passing on my project.
However, her comments (short, but effective) made me realize that my hook/plot was too obscure. I thought I was being clever by not giving too much away, hoping to pique her curiosity-- what actually ended up happening was that my hook was ineffective because my hook/plot didn't give enough
...and with a 'defective hook,' a 'big fish' on my agent query list got away...!
Live and learn... Hats off to Suzie Townsend for doing this. She must be exhausted after reading hundreds of query letters!
And I really appreciate hearing legit comments instead of "...not right for our list... etc. etc." Hate those form rejections! Is anybody with me on this???
I hope by posting Suzie's comments to my query letter that I have helped someone out there in QT forum-land.
Hope other QT members do the same.
