Dear Literary Agent:

I'm writing to you about my book, She Wept, which is a nonfictional story about passion, Love, trust, relationships and self-discovery.

Just as Rick Warren in his book "The Purpose Driven Life" helped enable people to crystallize their God-given gifts and mission on Earth, "Somebody Prayed" seeks to empower adolescent girls and young women through the main character's testimony ?to cling, uncompromisingly, to the God-given talents and resources entrusted to them.

Fall in love with this life-changing story about a beautiful and gifted young woman who overcomes herself and the choices she makes because of the Amazing Grace of Heaven. Find out how this popular, intellectually bright and professionally astute sorority girl who seemingly had it all manages to fumble her way through young adulthood, yet miraculously regroups, tackles issues and transforms before self-destructing.

Meet the book's ingenue, and be inspired. A God-fearing person all her life, the protagonist believes that it is more blessed to give than to receive, yet she somehow forgets that she, too, is part of that equation, and responsible for staying true to herself holistically.

But what happens when she forsakes her responsibilities to herself and instead makes it her priority to attend to the well-being of fragile confidants in her life? She eventually finds herself in perilous situations strange circumstances. Without immediate answers to how she arrived at her current state, she seeks clues from within, only to discover that she doesn't recognize the person she has become or the type of people she has allowed into her heart. Alarming!

With limited, relevant popular culture resources and messages of inspiration available to adolescent girls and young ladies "She Wept" fills an urgent need and seeks to be one source of encouragement to which young women can refer to if faced with situations pertaining to the intersection of self-love, Christianity, personal goals (educational, career, health, financial) and relationships (romantic, social).

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I very much look forward to your response.

Respectfully Submitted,

My word! This letter IS horrible, but I'm glad to have someone else's mistakes to learn from. :)
