ARE QUERIES DRIVING YOU MAD? THEN THIS IS THE WEBINAR FOR YOU! 

When it comes to Querying, you cannot think too far outside the box. There are certain standards that apply universally. However, it is possible to make your query letter stand out from the rest of the slush pile and tailor it to target the agent of your dreams. Get the inside scoop about querying from Author and query expert Kristine Carlson Asselin. The session will show you queries that work (and why!) and help you perfect the elements of your query. In this seminar, you will not hear vague advice you will get tangible tips to create an effective, concise query letter.

 

We hope you’ll join us on June 11 at 7pm for this fabulous webinar with Kristine Asselin and learn how to craft queries that jump out of the slush pile.. and into an agent or editor’s YES pile! 

 

BioKristine Asselin grew up on a small, family-owned golf course in Central Massachusetts, which was the inspiration for Falling for Wonder Boy. She is also the author of seventeen works of children’s nonfiction as well as the YA novel Any Way You Slice It and co-author of the middle grade novel The Art of the Swap.

 
She loves being a Library Trustee, and volunteering with the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her alter-ego is The Query Godmother and she loves critiquing queries and helping people with submission packages. She lives on the outskirts of Boston with her teen daughter and husband, and is represented by Kathleen Rushall of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
