For the second half of 2016, our editors began a full qualitative assessment of the query packages we received for long-form (e.g., novel) submissions. Of the 28 packages received after this assessment started, only one rated as “excellent” for both the cover letter and the synopsis; seven were “poor” for both.
Your query package is what gets your manuscript a fair reveal, but too many authors either wing it, or they lack the experience necessary to develop a query package that shines.
Submit your go-to query package to us, and we’ll give it a comprehensive review — telling you where it’s good, and where you have opportunities for improvement.
Query packages improved through our consultation may not be used to pitch queries to Caffeinated Press.
