How do I write a query letter? I’m not sure what to include or how to best pitch my book. 

How do I find the right for my novel? I don’t know where to look and don’t have connections in the industry. 

Why does my book keep getting rejected? It must just not be good enough.

Does this sound like you?

One of the most common obstacles writers face in getting published is finding an agent.

Writers often find the querying process complicated and overwhelming. As a result, writers receive constant rejections without understanding why. This can plunge writers into a cyclone of self-doubt as they begin asking themselves: “Is my manuscript the problem? My query letter? Or is this agent just not the right fit?”

The root of this problem is actually quite simple: writers don’t know what agents are looking for, and don’t understand what standards they need to meet in order for agents to take their writing seriously.

In the Writing Gym, we get real results by helping writers understand both agent expectations and market trends. Through regular communication with high-level agents, editors, and publishers, Annalisa is able to hone in on the ever-moving target of what publishers and agents are seeking now and why.

That’s the Writing Gym Difference.   


How would it feel to have a publishing expert give you specific feedback and advice on your query letter and pitch?

How would it feel to know that your manuscript is at the top of an agents’s pile?

How would it feel to start getting manuscript requests, rather than rejections?

What authors are saying . . .

“I was having some doubts about how my second book was going to grab an audience. Working with Annalisa, she gave me a lot of valuable and positive feedback, which gave me a lot of incentive to go forward. This was instrumental in presenting myself to publishers, especially where Annalisa helped me sharpen up my pitch.” - Terry Harkin (Read more about Terry’s Success Working With Annalisa)
