One thought on “Writing a Cover Letter

  1. Be brief and to the point. Thank the editors/evaluators for their time and consideration. Avoid (1) pleading and (2) overconfidence. Be matter-of-fact. The cover letter should not try to sell the story. The story has to sell itself. I hope that helps. I followed these guidelines in getting my new release, Angela 1: Starting Over, published, but it took four years of getting rejections. Be ready for those and do not let them determine the value of your story. To find out more about my book, please follow the link to my website. Thanks!
