One-Page Sell Sheet

I've been working on my One Page this week.

A One Page is sort of a visual aid for editors, agents, and publishers. Authors are encouraged to bring these to the upcoming conference.

Another way to think of it is as a visual Query letter. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a query letter is what you send to an agent or an editor to get them interested in your manuscript. To get your foot in the door. If your query is brilliant and outstanding, you might get a request to send some of your chapters.

My husband put this together for me and I think it's beautiful. I also think, however, that I need to work on my text a bit more. It just doesn't FEEL right to me.

Let me know what you think.

  1. Nice job...I'm envious over your one page...I'm not so artistic or imaginative. Best wishes for a full manuscript request!

  2. Oh my gosh--that's gorgeous! Your husband is a talented guy!

    I see a couple vague spots in the text that could be tightened--"her feelings are thrown into confusion"and "life gets complicated." Is there a way to tweak them and maybe infuse the text with a little more voice?

    Good luck! I'm sending manuscript request vibes your way!
