Authors need query letters, book summaries, and book synopses to get their book in front of literary agents, editors, and publishers, hoping it leads to a traditional book deal. But writing a query letter is very different from writing your book and it isn’t easy—the short letter has to captivate and make your book stand out from all of the others. This often requires the help of a professional editor.

Make your first impression memorable with our new professional query letter and book synopsis review and editing services. Our editors (the same world-class pros that do our book editing) can review and strengthen both your existing query letter and the synopsis of your book so that they are compelling and convey what your book is about.

What’s the difference between a query letter and a synopsis?

Your Query Letter

Your query letter is a 1-page pitch designed to get an agent’s attention. It details your book’s main themes as well as some info about you as an author.

Your Book Synopsis

Your synopsis is an overview of your book that spans 3 to 5 pages. It should highlight your story’s structure, character details, and significant plot points—everything needed to help agents understand what your book is about.
