This query letter resulted in a contract with Louise Fury of The Bent Agency and FOREVER YOURS, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing for Marie's debut novel, ACROSS THE DISTANCE, coming May 5, 2015. In Marie's own words, she's an author who writes "stories with heart, heat, and happily ever afters."

Kris started querying in 2010 and about 150 queries, and three years later, this query letter resulted in a contract with Kathleen Rushall from Marsal Lyon Literary Agency for THE SWEET SPOT, which is currently on submission. If you can't wait for that, she has another novel, ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT, that is being published by Bloomsbury Spark in April 2015.

This query letter resulted in a contract with literary agent Patricia Nelson from Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. Kathryn queried her on 11/12/14; she requested a partial the same day; full on 11/19, emailed to talk on 11/30, and offered on 12/2. This was Kathryn's second round of queries (after some key revisions). Twenty-eight agents were queried with 12 partial/full requests. Awesome work! THE MAINFRAME KILLS AT MIDNIGHT is not yet under contract with a publisher.
