Kurzbeschreibung

"Noah Lukeman, one of the top literary agents in New York, gave writers a great gift."
--James Frey (regarding The Plot Thickens)

"This will certainly help writers of any kind defeat rejection and possibly score."
--Writers.com (regarding The First Five Pages)

Many books have been written about the query letter. But few have been written by literary agents, who receive thousands of queries each year and who grapple with them on a daily basis. Even fewer books have been written by literary agents who are currently active, who are willing to write from the trenches and offer their perspective on why they reject query letters, and why they accept them.

During his last 16 years as a literary agent, New York literary agent Noah Lukeman, President of Lukeman Literary Management Ltd and author of three critically-acclaimed books on the craft of writing, has read thousands of query letters. Now, for the first time, he offers his insights on the query letter, sharing an insider's perspective, giving insights and practical tips about what works and what doesn’t.

"Lukeman’s advice is practical—and often entails multiple, time-consuming steps—without a hint of the flakiness that creeps into many writing guides."
--Publishers Weekly (regarding The Plot Thickens)

This 100,000 word file also includes for free two of Noah Lukeman’s other books--How to Land (and Keep) a Literary Agent and Ask a Literary Agent.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It doesn't get any easier than this.... 2. April 2008
Von Shannon L. Yarbrough - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Ah, the dreaded query letter. It's sad to think that a tiny introduction letter of your work can be the fine line between an author and literary representation. It's also sad because most authors don't enjoy writing them or don't know how. I was one of those writers only until recently. I've spent most of this year sending out query letters; I've gotten some rejections and am still waiting to get some responses.

I only wish I would have come across this free download a few months ago. Lukeman's information here is precise and very informative. Any aspiring writer who is thinking about querying in the near future should definitely download it.

By reading agent blogs and websites, you'll quickly discover that every agent is different in what they want. Lukeman touches on that here as well. Some want the first 5 pages. Some want 20. Some want an outline. Others only want a letter. Lukeman's advice definitely helps an author to be prepared up front in order to meet deadlines and stay on top of agent replies.

I will definitely be pulling out my copy of this download next time I'm ready to start querying again. It's better than anything I've read on the market today as far as "how to's" for writers go. Thank you Noah Lukeman for making it a free asset!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best in its Field 9. Oktober 2010
Von Anne Wingate - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HRF7WK/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_img

As a writer with 23 books from major publishers, an Agatha nomination, and one book that sold about 20,000 copies; an editor; a publisher; a former writing teacher at four universities in two states; and a Ph.D. in English with a specialty in creative writing, I approached this book very cautiously. I did not expect to learn anything from it.

I was wrong.

If I were still teaching writing, I would make this required reading for all of my students who were serious about wanting to be published. Noah Lukeman knows the market and the rules, and was kind enough to share it with beginners. But even I, who am in no way a beginner, learned from this book. I recommend it in the highest possible degree.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great advice, but a couple things bothered me 28. Juni 2010
Von Matt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
HOW TO WRITE A GREAT QUERY LETTER was no doubt helpful, providing valuable tips for writers looking to land an agent. I had nearly 150 highlights in the book, so it was definitely worth my money. There were, however, a couple of things that irked me about this book:

1. There were numerous times the author stopped short of giving complete advice, referring readers instead to buy another one of his books. This is fine for topics other than query letters, but anything pertaining to the writing of a query letter should be covered thoroughly in this book. No matter how beneficial or inexpensive a book might be, no one likes to feel like a sucker for buying it.

2. This book would have been much better if there were a few sample queries included--good ones, bad ones, and explanations as to why each worked or didn't. I feel like a lot of these How-To writing books talk at us instead of to us.

Still worth buying and full of useful information, so I gave it four stars.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Detailed Reference Book on Writing a Query Letter 11. Juni 2012
Von Christine Rice - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
"How to Write a Great Query Letter" by Noah Lukeman is an excellent reference guide for how to write an effective query letter. Lukeman is a long-time literary agent, so he knows what agents want to see in a query letter. He is very detailed about how to properly construct a query letter and he covers all the bases.

In the book, Lukeman talks about the importance of preparation by thoroughly researching agents. He discusses the best and worst query letter formatting techniques. Then he breaks apart the query letter paragraph by paragraph and explains key features to include and mistakes to avoid - for both fiction and nonfiction. Lastly, he goes over final issues, including common mistakes writers make with their query letters. The end of the book includes a checklist for writers for when they craft their query letter.

Even though I'm a self-published author, I can see how this book is a great resource for new writers interested in seeking an agent or publisher. It is evident, that by following the suggestions in the book, the writer will develop a highly effective query letter that is clear, concise, direct, full of the important traits that agents are looking for, and free of nonessential information. I highly recommend this book to writers to read before they query any agents or publishers.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Advice 9. November 2014
Von Mark S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Mr. Lukeman clearly brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this book. Others may not agree with specifics of his advice or may feel that it is not applicable to their situation, and that may be. But Mr. Lukeman nonetheless offers concrete and common sense advice based on his extensive experience. For my money, this free resource is an invaluable tool to gain insight into what works and what doesn't when trying to get published. It also serves as an excellent behind the curtains glimpse into the realities and workings of the publishing industry. I very much enjoyed and appreciated his insights!
