Kyra (pronounced with a long i, as in ice) Nelson. She’s been interning with A+B Works Literary Agency for about two years, and she’s read a ton of query letters. She’s learned a lot in her time at the agency, and she wants to pass some of her knowledge on.

Kyra’s currently pursuing her MA in linguistics. She has a BA in English language from Brigham Young University with minors in editing and English.

She’s a compulsive thing-doer. She likes to be busy, whether it’s reading, writing, watching sports, playing violin, baking cookies, traveling, decorating cakes, or just goofing off with friends. She loves adventure, even if it’s a small adventure like roasting Starbursts over the open flame of her stove top.

Feel free to submit questions to thoughtsfromtheagentdesk @ gmail.com

She also does query critiques, which can be submitted at the email address above. If you’re interested in any of her other editorial services, email her for more information.

STARTING BID: $10

TURNAROUND TIME allow two weeks for query critiques + 1st chapters, four weeks for partials, and six weeks for full critiques. Donors will discuss turnaround times with winners. All winning bids are guaranteed. Should some unforeseen event happen, money will be returned to winner or the winner may choose to have Brenda Drake provide the critique.
