Anyone got any advice on queries? I've done some reading on the subject, but still feel uncertain about it.

I'm so glad you asked this. I've started to twice and changed my mind.

I've finally mastered writing introductory letters to magazine editors because that's a simple, straightforward art and I don't have to worry about "wowing them". However, I have no idea what to say to an agent or a publisher and, as I understand it, you do have to impress them, but you don't want to come off like you're trying too hard . . . Kinda like dating as I recall . . .
