Today I sent off my marketing pitch for my novel A Half Life of One. As you know I'm trying to catch myself an agent. I re-wrote the Covering Letter and the Synopsis in the light of all the great advice I was given by readers of this blog. Then I re-wrote them again. And again. And one more, final, time. Hopefully they're now perfect. Better than the novel probably.
Actually I re-wrote the first chapter of the book too, in the light of some of the things I'd learned writing the query letter. As a result, for the first time I'm happy with the opening. You can read it here if you're interested.
I will, of course, let you know what kind of response I get. You're partly responsible for the success or failure of my marketing strategy, after all.
