I'd be happy to take a peek at the first 100 pages of your book; please send as a Word doc or PDF. I'm taking on very, very few new clients at present, so I'd have to be knocked sideways by both story and writing.

Worth querying for the excellent feedback alone. Not lengthy, but reasoned, and when you read it you may wonder why you didn't see it that way before.
Great editorial eye and would make a killer partner/agent.
