To day is the Query Letter Blogfest over at Jodi Henry’s blog Turning the Page: A Literary Ramble go (HERE) to read all the participants’ entries. We’re posting query letters for review on our WIP or finished manuscripts.
So here’s my entry. I worked late trying to pull something together, so this is kind of rough. Anyway, it’s a query for my NaNoWriMo project that is currently in revision. Thanks for Stopping by!
Dear Dream Agent:
When seventeen-year-old Graciela Zamora’s spring fling, drowns right before their date, she’s about to discover that there’s a fine line between the living and the dead, and if she doesn’t heed the warnings in the diary of a girl killed in 1904, she may very well cross over that line.
After a horrible summer of healing her shattered heart, Graciela hopes her first year at Bryn Mawr College for girls will distract her from the memory of the tragedy. But as a strange group of girls who wear black robes and hold rituals late at night start stalking her, demonic dogs attack her, and a flock of owls follow her at night, campus life proves to be dangerous.
Together with her roommate, the brother of her deceased fling, and a mysterious fraternity guy, Graciela discovers she’s a descendent of an ancient witch coven, and it is up to her to stop the planned ritual to raise the Bane Lord, who will bring about the culling of all humans. As she struggles to learn her inherited powers from a diary she finds, two guys vie for her affections, and her mixed up feelings for them may just hurt both. And if that wasn’t bad enough, only Graciela’s blood will raise the demon lord.
KNIGHT OWLS, a young adult paranormal, is complete at 70,000 words.
