Are you getting a lot of rejections on your queries? Ever consider your rejections are because your query and blurb need help? How’s your beginning–flat, exciting, confusing? Need some feedback on it from a traditionally and self-published NY Times and USA Today bestseller?

  • query letter help
  • blurb help
  • synopsis editing
The cost: $25 (payments accepted via Paypal.) I know how difficult it was, as a new author, to understand what makes a good story, a good beginning, and a good query. Blurbs can be really confusing. What to leave in? What to take out?


I’m Marie Harte. I majored in English many moons ago. Grammar is my rock. I’ve taught a few writing classes over the years, written 110 books and counting, and have been on the NY Times and USA Today bestseller lists. After 13 years of writing, I have some great info to share. And writing blurbs and queries keeps my craft skills in shape.


I’m not guaranteeing you a bestseller. I’m not guaranteeing you’ll get requests from 14 agents and editors in a day. I am going to give you some feedback from all my years of experience to help you polish up that query letter, blurb, and synopsis so you look like a professional.

“Query Queen editing is fast, efficient and has a knack for putting the sparkle into a blurb. Two thumbs up.” Kate Curran

“As a new writer I found Marie’s advice to be incisive, accurate, and to the point. I was too close to my work to see the problem, but she labelled it for me instantly and showed me how to correct it in a very user-friendly way. Her knowledge and experience helped to polish up my work enormously. 
She was very encouraging throughout the whole process and put her comments and corrections in a way which were easy to understand and apply going forward.
Her reviewed blurb and cover letter was so much better than mine and she certainly helped me to pitch the book correctly too. I would strongly recommend Marie’s service to any new writer.”  Christine Anne Asbrey
