"After purchasing Query Letters That Rock my rejection rate is almost zero. First I know the magazine and I know the reader. If I email a query and it’s rejected, I send it out again to another market (within 24 hours). Plus, I write a thank-you email to the first magazine and send out another query. Developing a relationship with editors makes for assignments and contracts coming my way. On the average, I sell to about 300 paying markets annually. Most pay between $400 – $500, plus photos.” —Carolyn Tomlin
