I think it'll be useful, if for nothing else than to read all the blurbs and learn how best to write my own.
Oh! and "The Four Ms. Bradwells" is right inside the first page. It's the first thing you see! I hope it's okay to post this here: congratulations, Meg. That's just super.
it sounds like a great idea to read through all of those! if you read through a sequence that have the topic and voice of your own novel, it should get you in the "groove" for writing a query that gets to the point!
I hope I fund such a book. That would be useful!
That's lovely to hear, Petrea! (And I didn't know, thanks!) I do think looking through a catalog is a great way to think about how to pitch your book, collect blurbs, etc.
Not all the blurbs are interesting. That could be personal taste (it probably is). I have my work cut out for me but, as I'm at the querying stage, I see this as an opportunity.
