Query letter only per guidelines on website

From her Twitter: authors, I want to read your logline/hook sentence first, not wade through paragraphs about why you’re querying me, the journey of writing your novel, etc. That stuff has a place, but at the END of the query. Ground me in your story as quickly as possible!!!
