My Promise to You

So you know all those websites that boast free stuff? You know. Books, e-courses, meal plans, & DIY-ers. Beware!
Now most of these places have good intentions, & I'm not trying to discredit them in any way. I enjoy reading some of the emails I receive from the mentioned sites. WHAT I cannot stand is this...every other email is SELLING something. I get it. Self-promo & all the things that come with it but lay off. I guess my big beef is don't claim you give free advice, help, and projects then pitch me all the items you need, want, or worse yet 'get a percentage' of a sale item. It gets better! The original sites/people first off promise to never "spam" you. Expect for it turns into that. Second, they start these other promotions "you would be interested in" so not only are you receiving one email 3x a week, it's 2 or 3 emails 3x a week. Oh added bonus emails: when the sale is ending, "hurry to get your copy now!" Seriously stop. You're starting to sound desperate. Trust me I'm unsubscribing from these pests. With my rant over, I promise you, my readers, once I do 'make it' not to email you more than once for any item. I will stay true to my reason for blogging in the first place. Sharing my journey & encouraging others on their own writing journey. Anyways, #keepyourpenup & have a great day.

Query Letter for my latest Sci-Fi

As I promised, here is my query letter. I'm tweaking it here and there so feel free to tell me what you think!
I'm still plugging away typing it all out. I might, just might try NaNoWrimo this year but I already have plenty of irons in the fire. Anyways...

Dear Agent,

Sassy, brassy and gritty, Losi's reputation is one of her greatest assets. Once you break enough bones, snap enough cartilage, and twist enough tails others begin to notice.
She's got the  set up: find the felons and turn them in for a paycheck. It all goes wrong just once. It's a meteorite shower from there.
Losi's high-ranking military father is murdered by Kos, the most wanted felon in her galactic realm.
She does what any revenge filled alien would do and tacks him down to the newly opened ETP156.
The slim thickens.
Losi is assigned protection due to circumstances beyond her control. As if she needs the protection!
One of two things Losi doesn't trust is hired help. It's just extra baggage for her to keep alive.
Losi doesn't find Kos on ETP156. She finds something bigger than the star in the solar system; a conspiracy. The same which killed her father. The same which will destroy the last stability in the universe if Losi doesn't stop him.

The Intergalactic Adventures of Losi: ETP156 with 165,000 words is offered for your consideration.
