Dear Agent for a Day,
I have followed your blog for several months and appreciate that your posts are educational, with many dashes of humor and candid honesty. I have noted that you enjoy young adult fiction, and I hope to interest you in representing my novel.
Eighteen-year-old Kellen is a Crowmaker, lifted from a bleak existence and turned via magical experimentation into a hero–a law keeper for the expanding Tenvan colonies. When the Crowmakers’ greatest weapons begin to fail and Kellen’s best friend and fellow Crowmaker is killed as a result, Kellen sets out to bring to justice the man she holds responsible, the engineer whose flawed plans and rushed experiments caused the failure. What Kellen finds instead is a dead man, a town under siege from a sentient force of nature with links to her personal plight, and the need to save the life of her enemy’s daughter in order to save her own.
CROWMAKER is a 76,000 word young adult fantasy novel which follows Kellen’s journey through despair and the desire for revenge and along the path to becoming something greater than a made hero–her own person. It is a completed work and available upon your request.
I am also the author of several short stories which have appeared in THE LEADING EDGE (April 2003) and CRICKET MAGAZINE (Dec. 2005), as well as other publications.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
