Seven things you shouldn't say in a query letter →

Try not to say things like this:

  1. I’m certain this memoir will be a huge success!
  2. My book will make readers laugh out loud.
  3. All those other Christian books are getting it wrong – but my book gets it right.
  4. I have published five books with PublishAmerica, all of which have been listed on Amazon.
  5. I  am writing a fiction novel.
  6. Have you ever wondered…?
  7. Several agents have already passed on my book, but had positive things to say. Here are excerpts about my book from three other agents’ emails.
