Bartles Go Fund Me Auction Item #30: A Query Letter Critique by Agent Julia A. Webber

About this item: I will help polish the one-page query letter before the author sends it off to agents/ editors. This includes line edits, general feedback, and questions and comments on potentially unclear points. Once the author's had time to make adjustments, I will go over the query letter a second time. Following another round of adjustments, I will go over it a third (and last) time to make sure it's the strongest version it can be.
