Curious about how a book begins its journey to traditional publication? After writing a novel, a would-be author needs to find a literary agent who will represent him or her and attempt to sell the book to publishers. Query Letter Success has collected a lot of query letters that published authors first used to gain the attention of their agents. You can see the original query letter I wrote to my agent Jim McCarthy, back in 2013. Notice how similar the wording is to the back cover copy of Zeroboxer.
