Quote of the Week: Andrea Brown

“A query letter should be like a skirt.  Long enough to cover everything, but short enough to be exciting.” – Andrea Brown

The above quote was given at the Big Sur in the Rockies Conference and actually mentioned on good friend Julie Hedlund’s Blog (who attended the event). So I’m going to send all of you to her blog to check out the great additional info she learned from Andrea Brown: Write Up My Life Blog
