Query Critique Swap?

The last time I needed help with a query, I posted on Agent Query Connect which is an awesome website, but not for me.  I got so much conflicting advice, I went into a query-hysteria induced coma for four days.  Okay, maybe not.  But this time, I'm asking a small group of writers I know and trust to help out instead.  And there is no one smarter than blog people (i.e. people who read and and write writing blogs).  If you have a few minutes that you wouldn't mind spending critiquing my query for THE CHARGE, a YA science fiction novel, please comment.  I would be very grateful, and more than happy to return the favor by critiquing your query, synopsis, or short story.

    I hope you get a lot of good feedback on your query. I think it's really good, I especially liked the line "a west that stayed wild." And the humor really comes across.

    Just to let you know, I've given you the One Lovely Blog award. You can pick it up here:

  2. Hi Alex,
    Thank you so much for the award!! I really appreciate your feedback on my query. I have gotten some feedback from a few others, and feel like I have a sense of what I need to change and what I need to keep.
