Meet Becquer. A Query in Progress – Take 2

by Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban

Here is my second attempt to write the query for my adult paranormal novel, Meet Becquer. This time I got it down to 89 words.

I don’t think this summary works as a query either. More like the copy for a book trailer?


Meet Becquer.

He’s handsome, well-read, and can get you that book contract you always dreamed.

Never mind that he’s also an immortal and lives on human blood.

What would that matter?

Your relationship is strictly business.

Or so you thought.

Until Becquer’s life is threatened, and you discover that walking away is not an option.

Because he was hurt while protecting your son.

Because you are the only one who can save him now.

Because you care for him.

Welcome to Becquer’s world.

Please, come inside. He’s waiting for you.


  1. Wow. This one is really cool 🙂
    The first take was interesting too, but it did tend to be a bit too wordy. This one’s perfect. I’m actually looking forward to read Becquer’s story and I don’t even like vampires. 🙂

  2. Thank you Kay. I’m so glad you are intrigued for my query and want to read more. That was the intention.
    And don’t worry about not liking vampires, you will like Becquer, I promise.
