As many of you know, we here at Coverage Ink will review your query letter for free. That means simply, you send us the query which you are planning to blast to the industry. We then give you our feedback. This generally means letting you know if you could say things more compellingly, if the logline is getting it done, if it paints a clear enough picture of you, and of course, whether there are any typos or grammatical issues.
|Dear Lord, no.|
2. Paragraph 2. Logline. You can use up to three sentences. Make EACH WORD COUNT.
Our good friends over at Blake Snyder’s “Save the Cat!” have an indispensible logline format tool you should avail yourself of. Different genres have different logline requirements.
3. Paragraph 3. Conclude by asking if they would like a look. Then end with a callback to your first paragraph. For example, perhaps you said you just spent 6 months in Tibetstudying with the Dalai Lama’s personal chef Floon Bingleflarb. So in paragraph 3 you’d callback to that with: “Thanks again for your time, and by the way, I have an awesome yak eyeball goulash recipe I’d love to whip out on you sometime.”
