HRH Miss Snark,
Would it be more helpful or harmful to mention my novel's promotional website, still in its beta, in queries? If you're curious (URL redacted)
(Mr. Sulu, full power to all shields.)
I'm going to do you what I think is a big favor and not print your URL. It's the kind of website that brings out the snark in Snarklings and I'm not sure...no, I KNOW you're not ready for that.
You've posted a terrible hook, a plea for agents, and pictures of yourself that are clearly taken by an amateur. If it had a good hook, a simple email address and pictures of you naked...err..I mean, not standing by your car, it would be more compelling.
There are 675 posts about hooks and thanks to google you can see them all by clicking on the "crapometer" label on the blog.
Websites aren't bad things but when you post bad writing, you shoot yourself in the foot with all those guns you show on the other page.
You should also use the website to augment what you say in a query, not just repeat it.
Clue for the day: write well, and not just on your query and pages, but on your website too
