Today’s Writing Prompt:  Write a query letter for your favorite book.  

If you are a writer who ever had a problem explaining your book to anyone who asks, this is a great exercise. Pick a book that you love and you feel you really know well.  How difficult or easy would it be for you to pitch?

Query letters used to scare the living daylights out of me.  The key is to do your research about the publisher, agent, editor, etc. and to know and understand the book you are pitching.  This may be your only chance to make an impression.
