Dear Agent for a Day,
I am seeking representation for my suspense/thriller novel, Deadworld, complete at 110,000 words. The following is my query blurb.
I warned my partner that someone would die. Heck, our prime suspect warned us, but then why would you trust a guy who so obviously obscured his past and evaded every possible question posed to him? Never mind the fact that Nick Anderson lives some strange, in between existence, vicariously balanced between the living and the dead. But then, Jackie doesn’t have it in her to leave well enough alone. People were getting drained of blood, and it was her job to find out who did it and why. I just wish her determination was grounded in something more healthy. Some of that is my fault. I’ve known for years, but I never confronted her. I loved her too much. Now death pursues her from both the present and the past, and I don’t know that I will be able to help her. Nick might, but he seems ready to embrace death as much as Jackie runs away from it. This guy is bad news. I could touch the spirit world, but I never encountered anything like this. I only wish I’d known my warning of death had been directed at me.
This is my second completed manuscript. I am Vice President of my local RWA chapter, and upon request, I would be happy to submit a partial or the full manuscript for your review. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
