Query Cortney Radocaj
Thank you so much for considering me for representation! Please complete as many options below as possible, and I will get back to you as soon as I am able. I try to respond within 4-6 weeks.
A few reminders:
-Your query is mostly about your book, rather than your biography. This isn't about you, but rather what you have written. I want to see your work! Leave the bonding and "getting to know you" for later.
- Queries are meant to leave an agent wanting more. Don't tell me everything, but do tell me your characters, conflict, and a bit of rising action. Don't give me the solution (that's meant for the synopsis)!
- I love voice-driven work and manuscripts that start in an engaging place. Your beginning needs to capture your reader's attention, and you do that with voice and a bit of action rather than exposition and description. Who is your character? Show me!
What I like to see in my inbox:
I DO NOT accept:
- Children’s/Picture Books
- Crime/detective fiction
- Political/military thrillers
- Novellas, short story collections, poetry collections, or screenplays
Thank you, and best of luck in all of your writing endeavors!
REMINDER: This form is for manuscripts I requested via pitch contests on Twitter (i.e. #PitMad, #DVPit, #SFFPit, etc.). If I didn't request through a pitch contest, please return to the Belcastro site to choose the correct query form.
Please also include the tweet I liked in your query.
