Custom Query Letter


Finishing a book is a big accomplishment. The next step is finding literary representation.  Easier said than done when agents receive hundreds of queries per week.  The Query Letter Coach takes the stress out of the submission process by creating a letter that will grab agents' attention. After working closely with you to understand your project and having you fill out an in-depth questionnaire, The Query Letter Coach will design a query that positions your book in the best light.  

Cost: $99.00 USD

Agent Submission List


An impressive query letter is the key to attracting a literary agent.  Knowing who to send your letter to is equally important.  Don’t waste your time on agents who won’t respond or don’t have the connections to sell your material.  The Query Letter Coach will compile a hand-selected list of literary agents who have the highest likelihood of signing you.  You’ll also receive a detailed query strategy and a submission calendar to increase your chance of a quick, enthusiastic reply.  

Cost: $99.00 USD

Editing & Proofreading


Unlike some editing services that rope writers in with teaser promotions or offer discounts on a lengthy read-through that can cost thousands, The Query Letter Coach has a reasonably priced flat rate, tackling one chapter at a time and providing comprehensive line edits along with detailed notes and a half-hour phone consult to discuss the chapter.  This approach allows you to become your own best editor.  

Cost: $75.00 USD per chapter 

(up to 12 pages double-spaced)

The Missing Piece


The Query Letter Coach was created by award-winning, internationally lauded author Brett Ellen Block.

Proven Results


Ms. Block has thoroughly researched the industry, its players, and its practices.  She's pioneered innovative new techniques for getting agents interested in unsigned books and assists authors with branding strategies to make their projects stand out.  Now she is devoted to helping fellow writers make their publishing dreams and aspirations a reality.


"24 hours after sending out the letter, a top agent replied..."

"Less than 24 hours after sending out the letter I received from The Query Letter Coach, a top tier agent replied, saying: 'While I'm not technically accepting new submissions right now, I'm intrigued by your pitch and would like to read the first three chapters.'  The query had to be impressive to get this agent to change her tune!  The Query Letter Coach is also a fantastic editor.  The critiques I've received are thorough yet encouraging.  My previous experience with editors was so discouraging that I nearly gave up writing.  But The Query Letter Coach makes the process fun and exciting.  I would recommend this service to every writer out there."
