You aren’t going to believe this, but my novel, (redacted), shares elements with Patrick Lee’s The Breach! And here is why. Yes, they are both written in English, but the similarities don’t end there. There are men and women in both novels, sometimes people get shot, and both titles are two words!I'm still laughing.
But more important: the author of this query SHOWED me she read the blog, didn't TELL me.
And her letter is both funny and enticing.
Query letters work.
Don't let anyone tell you any different.
