I’ve been thinking about posting this for a while now, and I think I’ll finally do it. You see, in my spare time I’ve been writing a novel based on my real-life experience working as an air conditioning service technician. In this post, I’m going to include my query letter to literary agents, and I’d love to know what my loyal readers think. Alright, here it goes.
Jerry Sigman is a master of heating repairs. Canberra residents love him and his hard work, knowing him as the very best the Australian Capital Territory has to offer. His life is a happy one, without any issues, until the Cult of the Heater comes along. They want him to join their ranks, using heating systems to take over Australia, one house at a time. When Jerry refuses, the cult takes his favourite toolbox hostage. Jerry must then go on a quest to stop this nefarious cult from destroying his toolbox, while also stopping their evil plans. On the way, Jerry will fall in love and learn more about himself than he ever knew was possible. And of course, he’ll learn a thing or two about ducted heating services for Canberra homes, as well.
This novel is a true epic, with thirty-seven point of view characters over a hundred and fifty-two chapters. It could be compared to the works of Leon Toys and Steve McQueen, without the horror elements or the Russian settings. If this was to be turned into a film adaptation, I’d have someone named Chris who acted in the Marble Cinematic Universe play the lead role. I don’t mind which Chris it is. There’s a few who would be suitable.
If you’re interested in learning more about this novel, which has a word count of 50,000 words, feel free to get in touch with my people. While I have an extremely busy schedule, I should be able to make time to respond. Thanks for your time, and I look forward to working with you.
