You may also use our link for a separate account or view on query letters...

It is on the website, under the guidelines section of the Contact/FAQ page!

Good reference by Shelagh!

The latest version of the query I'm using--with modifications to meet specific guidelines--can be found here:

One comment I've seen so far is that publishers may not want to take the risk on a 240,000-word novel by an unknown. Perhaps not, but I want to avoid POD on this one for a lot of reasons including the fact that the resulting retail price wouldn't be competitive with mainstream books.

That's one reason other publishers avoid books of that length, Malcolm.

It's cool you would post your own query letters for examination like that.
