Bloom Query Letter

**I don't want to post multiple query letters, so after some good comments, I've mixed things up a big and just edited the one below.**

I'm finally ready to query BLOOM again. (Yeah, like I tried really hard the first time.) What do you all think of my query?

Dear :

Born into one of the Big Three families of the Enchanter realm, 17-year-old Finna Claremont’s lineage—yeah, lineage—should mean she’ll make a great guardian.


Finna’s screwed up everything from transporting to blocking her thoughts since she was little, so when a fairy declares Finna has special responsibilities to protect her world, it shocks everyone, including Finna. To prove she can hack it as a guardian, Finna has to stop an evil politician threatening the rights of all Enchanters. She’ll have to trust the last person she ever expected to befriend (not to mention fall in love with) to pull it off. And trusting Liam Monroe isn’t as easy as it sounds. Because he’s a Monroe. They’ve hated the Claremonts for about a hundred years, and the feeling is definitely mutual. There’s a lot more than family honor riding on the line if Finna fails to measure up. She’ll have to count on her fledgling powers or else watch the world she knows disappear.

BLOOM is a YA fantasy novel complete at 87,000 words. Finna’s sweet but still sassy voice will appeal to fans of Ally Carter’s GALLAGHER GIRLS, and the family elements will draw in readers of Brandon Mull’s FABLEHAVEN.

I am the vice president of my American Night Writers Association chapter and a cold-hearted reviewer. If you would like to consider BLOOM, I’d be happy to forward the complete manuscript to you.

Thank you for your time and consideration,
Ranee` S. Clark

About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
