You'll also find query letter templates that were successful in my The Frugal Editor (http://budurl.com/TheFrugalEditor).  You'll also find the results of more than 100 of my interviews with agents about their query letter pet peeves in that book. The agents generously (and often humorously!) contributed in the interest of helping authors avoid booboos.
