I am seeking someone to write a query letter (the short synopsis/back description, because I'll take care of the bio part myself) to submit to literary agents. I have completed a dystopian YA novel. Think Divergent meets Cinder and add a dash of futuristic Alice in Wonderland.

I will provide a detailed synopsis as well as the description of the main characters, and the relationships seen within the novel (because I want the query to give a wink to the romance that's present).

I am really not difficult and don't ask for a lot, except knowing how to write and know the magic formula for a good cover letter (well maybe nothing magical, but be better at it than me ha!). If I like your style I will most probably ask you very very sweetly to edit the whole manuscript, hence another job.

Thank you.
