Still working on the query letter because query letters will always be the death of me, butttt:
We The Drowned is The Raven Boys meets Pan’s Labyrinth so if you like: 1. YA Dark Fantasy 2. A group cast of v broken boys and girls 3. Catholic boarding schools and creepy forests- We could be a match!
Prince Wells always believed that history maintained a variety of definitions. That it was the lie agreed upon. That it was told by the survivors. Or, perhaps more importantly, by the winners. Personally, she’d always preferred C.S. Lewis’s version— that history wasn’t just the story of bad people doing bad things. It was also the story of people trying to do good things, but somehow, something inevitably went wrong.
Her mother had told her that one once, when she was failing American History and wanted to know why they were learning about a subject in which the only parts of it that they were even told were from the dead white man’s side anyway. There was probably a better lesson that she had intended to pass on, but Prince took it to mean that all of humanity was doomed to some kind of inherent evil in their lives, be it internal or external. Or maybe a combination of the two.
She’d supposed that had been one of the reasons that she died.
No, not death. Death was too kind a word for what they did. Too neatly tied up with a deceiving bow.
It was murder.
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
