Query Letter/Proposal Review
This review combines a developmental edit and copyedit of your query letter and/or proposal for when you are ready to shop your manuscript to agents or publishers. Having been on the other side of the desk for many years and having read hundreds of such query letters and proposals, we offer an editor's sensibility of what to leave in and what to ditch when pitching a project.
Have you secured a book contract, only to learn that you must now secure permission to use countless images or excerpts? Chretien Wordsmithery can handle all of that for you, contacting rightsholders and making sure that you get all of the rights that your publisher requires.
