Query Letter Revamp

Two Revisions = 1.5 hours

Looking for a literary agent? With this service, my intention is to turn your query letter into a clear, concise, and stellar pitch that will interest any agent.

Below are examples of two rounds of edits I completed for a satisfied client (who has my thanks for letting me use this as a sample!)

Product Copy for Store Pages

Revision of Existing Blurb = 1 hour
Write New Blurb = 2 hours
*(Plot outline required for both)

Two things sell books: covers and product page descriptions.

If there’s one thing I’ve done a million times, it’s create book blurbs for store pages such as Amazon. Sometimes it seems harder than writing the actual book! But it’s a skill that only time, repetition, and revision can develop. Below are examples of the copy I’ve written for my own books, and what I’m willing to produce for your novel (outline of plot is required).

Strange University Product Page Copy

Enter a strange new world, where students ride gargoyles to the library, vampires solve murders, and classes start at night under the full moon..

My name is Simon Meadows: blood-drinker.

I am an ethical vampire. I only prey on wicked men, never on the innocent. For this, my coven condemned me to a half-century of darkness, buried alive in my own coffin with only my feeble psychic cries for help.

Then, a voice answered. He offered me freedom in exchange for a sacred vow to guard a paranormal university—a school of magic and danger, where students wield supernatural powers, demons prowl from other worlds, and professors teach the secrets of wizardry and the occult. A place where the multiverse reveals its wonders and horrors.

But now, a student is dead. A killer with a disturbing weapon not from this world is at large. I must stop him before he destroys everything I care about, including my werewolf apprentice, my shapeshifter best friend, and my unusual new home, Strange University.

And I thought being buried alive was hard.

TRAINLAND Product Page Copy

WOULD YOU GO TO HELL TO SAVE THE PERSON YOU LOVE MOST?

Jack Devins lost his four-year-old daughter Kelly and his will to live. He is about to jump in front of a train, but a mysterious, disfigured homeless man stops him. He has a message for Jack—a message from the great beyond.

Kelly’s soul is trapped in a purgatory where the souls of suicides wander for all eternity. Jack could rescue her, but only if he follows this “burnt man” into a dark subway tunnel, where death by train will awaken him in a place of unimaginable torment.

The underworld is full of horror, hungry for Jack’s soul, eager to feed off his pain. He has to fight, run, and learn the truth about the nature of the hell that surrounds him. Because salvation awaits inside Trainland, a crumbling city where the damned can become the most unlikely of heroes.

Board the ghost train into an underworld unlike any you’ve ever experienced. See why fans are describing their journey through Trainland as “terrifying” “freaky” and “unique,” with a “twist you’ll never see coming.”

OUTBREAK Product Page Copy

The end of the world was the beginning of his nightmare…

His father was dying. The Outbreak had killed everyone else. Kip Garrity has one last chance to save the only family he has left: leave his fortified home for the first time in years and find medicine in a broken world where everything is trying to kill him.

Armed with guns, tools, and knowledge passed down from his Green Beret father, Kip never expects to find a girl he never forgot. Alive and on a mission of her own, she agrees to work together so they can have a chance at survival—if only they can find a way to get along.

But a psychopath and his bloodthirsty band of raiders have other plans. Caught in their web, surrounded by an incoming zombie horde, Kip will have to act fast. He has a plan so crazy it might work, or it might fail and cost him the lives of everyone he loves—and maybe even his soul.

ASCENDANT Product Page Copy

The military designed his brain… Now, they will go to war with him…

Life is hard in the People’s Republic of America, an oppressed nation torn apart by war. After a violent encounter involving secret police officials, teenager Michael Cairne discovers telepathic powers that call the attention of the nation’s dictator, the One President himself, Harris Kole.

When Michael’s family is slaughtered, he escapes thanks to a rebel leader, who explains Michael’s importance as a “Type I” telepath in a secret underground war. Michael must join the rebel cause or face Kole’s army alone.

At a mountain hideout, Michael trains with other gifted rebels. As he struggles to fit in, he must battle his dark side, a ruthless “shadow self” implanted in his brain before birth, bent on justice and revenge. His relationship with two sisters—one a healer, the other a liar—will test everything he is made of and show him the true power of love and hate.

Michael must harness his power quickly. Kole has unleashed an assassin with similar abilities to hunt Michael down. A final, epic battle will force Michael to choose between two paths: become an Ascendant and change the world—or become the Bloodcrier and leave nothing but destruction in his wake.
