GumboWriters Successful Query Letter Sample #2

Dear Daniel:
I'm the Essence Bestselling author of Kiss Me Dammit as well as its follow-up, Kiss Me Dammit Part 2. With 4 books published thus far, I've been fortunate enough to have sold over 100,000 books however, I've done it all at this point without representation. I'd like to change that.

I would like to move forward with my career with the right representation that shares my vision of moving beyond niche urban books and into writing more of women's contemporary fiction with an multi-cultural flavor. I was flattered to have New York Times Bestselling Author, Sally Smith say my writing has "drama so real, heat rises off the pages."

I have been a featured author and pick for many book clubs across the nation who have vowed their support for my forthcoming books. I believe together with the right team nothing's impossible.

I'd love to talk to the right representation about the novels I just finished, including Kiss Me Dammit and Kiss Me Dammit Part 2.

If you're open to a discussion, please feel free to contact me.
