Hi folks! So I'm currently querying and noticed that some agents will ask for two PB manuscripts. I'm wondering how to do query letters for this - should it just be like two query letters combined into one? Should I pitch one and then another? Thanks in advance for any advice!

For agents who want two PBs, you can send one query with both short manuscript blurbs inside it.

Fingers and toes crossed for you!

I've done this with each number below as a paragraph:

1. Why I chose this agent with mention of all three titles and word counts.
2. First pitch.
3. Second pitch.
4. Third pitch.
5. Bio paragraph.
6. Thank you for considering, etc.
