This is a sister book to "Write A Great Synopsis", but this time the focus is on UK-style covering letters to help you net a UK agent. UK covering letters are a lot more laid back than US queries (by which I mean you won't get instantly rejected dun dun duuun if it's not perfect) but they're still important enough to stress writers out.

"Dear Agent" is a short, sweet, and to-the-point read that covers all the important questions, such as should I mention multiple books, being rejected, my pets, or that my mum liked it...

It also pays special attention to the tricky bits: that dreaded hook, how to write the bio section even if nothing very interesting has happened to you, and how to inject a bit of personality into the letter. It covers both fiction and non-fiction, multiple Points of View, and other sticky situations that can make the thought of summing it up in a letter more nerve-wracking than it needs to be.

If you're new to the submission process, or trying out the UK system for the first time after submitting in the US, then this is a great starting point. Authors who've been submitting in the UK or US will already be familiar with a lot of the advice, but the tips are still useful no matter how long you've been wading in the query trenches. ( )
