Dear Agent,

When an evil witch deceives young men and manipulates them to do her will, the king calls on Dustin. The talented young orphaned warrior sets out to protect the king’s unborn grand-children, whose hearts would make the witch undefeatable. On his journey to find the king’s daughter, he is kidnapped by a stranger with a dark secret and together they are thrown into a game of hide-n-seek with life and death to protect the king’s grand-children and restore the land and it’s people.

My edgy young adult novel The Mason of Hearts, will appeal to readers of both fantasy and paranormal. I hold a B.A. in English/Mass Communications and a Certificate in Publishing. I have a good online presence and founded a writing blog for writers called Blue Monkey Writing and have also guest blogged for “Write It Sideways”, “Writing Forward”, and countless other writing blogs.

Thank you for your time and consideration!

Thank You,

Devin Berglund

  1. Great pitches! Now I’m no agent, so I can’t really criticise it from their POV. But in my opinion, I prefer No.2. For me, it’s more descriptive, and No. 1, you mention the word “edgy”, which when I first saw it, hinted at the story as being “risky”. Is it? Of course it’s not! Also, I love the idea of you mentioning writing qualifications and accolades, it gets you a lot of Kudos if you mention them! :) Hope this helps! :)
