Q. How do you simplify a 50,000 plus word novel into a 2-3 paragraph query?
The answer according to many, but most recently per the the Query Shark:
Answer three simple questions: who's the protagonist; what choice does she face; what are the consequences of the choice. That's ALL you need.
Random thought that has nothing to do with queries, just the genre abbreviation (GBLT):
And this might be due to my tragic and frequently unrequited love for BLT Pizzas, but I'm wondering.... Am I the only person who gets confused when I read about a friend's publishing success in that genre/market?
