Dear people who publish books:

Dear Universe,

Please consider reviewing my self-help manuscript ‘How to Be the Queen of the World: a practical guide’ and parallel inspirational journal ‘Be The Queen’ for representation by your literary agency.

In ‘How to Be the Queen of the World: a practical guide’, readers journey across the globe in a contained explosion of my mind and heart with stories from an adventurous and ambitious life and through fact based methods for success at thriving in a crazy world. The book insights laughter, tears, and anger, and ultimately inspires action among readers to empower themselves and others, follow their dreams, and make the world a better place.

Written for ambitious young people, particularly women, who want to change their world, the book guides the reader through some of the challenges and opportunities they will face. The book, for future queens (or kings) of the world, is meant for people who seek to be leaders and achieve positions of power so they can use those positions to make a positive impact on society. When books on leadership and ambition in the business world fall short to guide future leaders of public, non-profit, and humanitarian endeavors, this book steps in to lead us forward.

The conundrum of doing what you love, making the world better, getting paid for it, and being happy, is one that many people face, seemingly alone. ‘How to Be the Queen of the World’ and the associated journal ‘Be The Queen’ allow the world’s next leaders to journey forward together.

‘How to Be the Queen of the World’ fuses a raw humor similar to Amy Poeler’s ‘Yes, Please’, the evidence-based how-to for ambitious women similar to Sheryl Sandberg’s ‘Lean In’ (but for non-business audiences), and the gritty true life confessions found in Elizabeth Gilbert’s ‘Eat Pray Love’. ‘Be The Queen’ is a journal similar to ‘Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration Journal’ by Meera Lee Patel.

As the author of this book and journal, I based the writing from my extensive experience pushing boundaries as a young, ambitious, female leader in the non-profit world (and often banging my head right into them before I get up and try again). I am scientist (MS, 2012, Iowa State University) turned humanitarian that has lived and worked in Kenya, Uganda, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Mexico, Guatemala, and the United States. I have been published in academic and educational journals as well as contributed to academic books in my field (in both English and Spanish). I researched and wrote this book to give myself a guide to survive life, stay ambitious, and to continue to pursue my dreams. I hope that it may serve others in that purpose.

I want to thank you for taking the time to read my query. I hope we will have the opportunity to speak more about the possibility to work together. If you are interested, I am happy to send you a more complete overview of each piece as well as sample chapters.

All the best,

Rachael Cox
