Seeking Advice (1 reply)

I am looking for anyone who is willing to advise me on writing a Query that will catch a publishing agents eye and/or suggest a publishing agent or publishing company interested in an Angsty Romance Urban novel, titled “To Dance with Ugly People.”

I have written Queries over the last two years and am always rejected. Here are excerpts of my latest Query:

"She has the courage, she has the strength, and she has the drive to take the measures necessary to find happiness. When she awakens from devastatingly realized memories of childhood sexual abuse and trauma, survives what could have been a deadly relationship (everyone has to make choices they regret at times), she pushes through the pain to move on. She finds true love. Can she use this love to create a meaningful life, existence and have the one thing she has been searching for: true affection and respect toward the woman she has become and save her soul?"

"The African American woman’s strength through these difficult situations is a hot pop culture phenomenon in AwardWinning Movies (“Precious” by Sapphire, “The Color Purple” by Alice Walker, “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf” by Ntozake Shange). “To Dance with Ugly People,” will be a difficult read, yet a salute to strong black women, and offer hope to readers living or on the verge of displaced lives to reconnect with their own passions."

I don't know if I need Start Up Funding to be able to afford wide spread marketing, but it seems the above topic's voice has died.  I don't believe that.  I think the world is ready for the next one and that "To Dance with Ugly People" will be the next AwardWinning Movie of struggles among society and the African American female.  If you research online, "To Dance with Ugly People," has gotten rave reviews, I am contacted often by readers and asked if I have contacted Oprah or Tyler Perry!  LOL. I have!  Got nothing back.  I have even revised the novel a couple of times seeking perfection.

I am 66 years old and living on a fixed income.  My book sales are small, but the feedback is amazing.  I just can't seem to get the novel out there to the masses.
