The Query Bundle

Out of every 100 queried books a publisher/agent receives, only ONE gets accepted...

Which means your query really has to count.

So how do you write an irresistable query letter that agents and publishers simply can't ignore?

Well, I was signed by a publisher, fresh out of high school, on my first querying attempt ever.

And then I was signed again by another publisher just 3 years later despite the low odds.

I believe this had very little to do with luck, and almost EVERYTHING to do with how I went about the process.

My approach, query structure, and supporting beliefs are what I want to give you to help you put your best pitch forward with agents and publishers:

The Query Bundle

My name's Pagan Malcolm...

...and I’m a bestselling author, copywriter, podcaster, speaker and business coach specialising in helping authors to understand the business side of publishing and sell out their book launches.

I started querying in my final year of high school, and I graduated fully expecting to receive tons of rejection letters. Instead, a publishing contract showed up in my inbox along with my acceptance into university, and from that point on I've been navigating all the different paths of authorship.

I've now published eight books, have been invited to speak internationally, been featured in 20+ publications and media, and have helped aspiring authors just like you to embark on their journey of authorship.

Your publishing dreams are possible, and they're not as difficult as you may think (and feel) that they are.
