Querying Kaitlyn Johnson
Thank you so much for considering me for your representation! Please complete as many options below as possible, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If I have not responded by 3 months at the earliest, feel free to check in. Be sure that your query is 1 page, the synopsis is no more than 2 double spaced pages, and the first 5 pages are the very first ones from your book! If submitting a graphic novel, give me the pitch, synopsis of the full story, and no more than 5 pages of script.
What I really want to hear most are your book details—character, conflict, and consequences. Keep the bio brief and save our bonding for the possible phone call. Also, save the reply email that allows you to check your query status! This is also the link that will allow you to message me to report if you've received an alternate offer.
