One of the instructors at the Florida Writer’s conference was Molli Nickell, She’s a scream. VERY funny lady, and very talented.
Molli worked for 30 years as a Time Life Editor and publisher.
She was the one making the decision about which writers received the “thanks but no thanks” rejection letter!
She’s doing a free webinar on QUERY LETTERS and I’ll be watching/attending (do you attend a webinar?) and SO SHOULD YOU.
And, no, I don’t get a cut of the tally or anything. I LIKE her. She can teach you important stuff, and she’s NICE.
I was skeptical about Molli when I went to the conference, but she’s all right. She’s a sweet, funny lady with a lot of knowledge and she’s extremely helpful and willing to “hold your hand” as a new author. This thing is free; I’m sure she’ll charge for other ones down the road, but I signed up and I want you to, too.

Here’s more about Molli and the event. I don’t think you have to be a FWA memer to do it, per the video in her link at the bottom.
MOLLI NICKELL is a former publisher, Time-Life editor, UCLA writing instructor, speaker, and 6x published NF author. She guides clients through the publishing maze as they learn to craft effective marketing documents which include a compelling email subject line, quick-read query letter, and professional book proposal. Her book, “WRITE RIGHT: Don’t shoot yourself in the foot” teaches non-fiction and fiction writers how to mature their work from “rookie” to “pro” to “published” before they launch their agent quest.

I met this lady. I don’t do plugs for just anything. I signed up. You should, too.
