Query Letter

I"m not to this point yet.  Way from it.  But when I am, I'm going to need these links, so I'm putting them in my blog for them.  You do know this blog is as much for me to save really cool stuff for myself later as it is to share with you, don't you? 

These links are from the Nelson Literary Agency LLC and describe in detail how to write outstanding pitch paragraphs for query letters.
