I sent out 7 new e-query letters for The Price of Freedom.
I know I've told everyone I'd stop after 2006 and seeing that's almost 2 years since my last batch--I thought I'd give it some limited tries and see what happens.
I completely abandoned the "traditional approach" to query-letter writing--seeing how all the old standbyes never worked worth a damn anyways; and just went with what I thought was a well-structured query letter.
3 pages total, but I gave it a personal touch to the whole thing: Kept the thing on track with what I was pitching, didn't rush it--gave the agent high points and some low points, but above all?
I think I did better this time around than I did last time. Last time, I didn't give one whit.
Pissed, angry, rebellious.
This time, I was a bit more sure of myself.
