Querying with PixApple? Really?
Yes, you read correctly. I have always subscribed to the dictum that familiarity breeds contempt (more often than not). So, with that in mind, I've decided to take a novel (pun intended) approach to querying a few agents regarding my recent novel (eBook)"Quietkill."
As you may or may not yet know, PixApple is the 'Rolls Royce' permanent replacement for Coverblast. It blows away every aspect of the aforementioned. If you have Coverblast and have not taken us up on our offer to replace it this week at ($0.00), then shame on you.:-) It's as easy as going to PixApple.com and registering, we'll do the rest.
Back to my purpose in writing this piece. Today, I had this idea that I would send out some queries using PixApple. There are several great advantages to this approach, despite being a bold and total break with convention:
This is a message from Quietkill Query to Mollie Glick
Ms. Glick - I know this is not your normal query but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
QUIETKILL - approx.78,848 words.
For nearly twenty-three years, some in the U.S. government have kept a deadly secret, causing the innocent deaths of Americans here on American soil. The Cold War never really ended, despite the high-fives and celebrations. The KGB never disappeared, just as the CIA remains, and will always remain.
Over the years, we have not focused on the real enemy; we have squandered vital strategic resources, and may have sealed our fate as a nation. Witness the growing strain between the U.S., Russia and China.
What follows is a warning. If we are lucky, and heed the signs, there may be one final chance to ensure the long-term existence of the United States of America, as we know it.

So, I'll continue to use this query format in a considerable sample size, and will let you know how it goes. One thing is for sure, it pushes the envelope, and presents a format agents have likely not seen before.
PixApple is for a lot more than sending great images on your computer as eCards. Its promotional and informational uses are limited only by your imagination.
