I saw this website in a comment on Query Shark (and Query Shark is one of those wonderful tools that keep on giving). It's called Query Test and it's an opportunity to get what a writer and/or reader's take on your query without waiting indefinitely or getting nothing but rejections. Although you may only get a thumbs up/down, there is a potential for at least a few comments on why it didn't work.
And you get to read others and learn from them - what works, what doesn't. What you like, what you don't and why. You submit a query and then read other queries, providing at least a reject/accept, to building up the points to submit new or revised queries.
It's too early in the day for me to have an opinion on it's long term viability, but I've found it an interesting exercise so far. Feel free to give it a try.
No ads. No income. Just a tool someone was kind enough to provide.
