Check out a recent deal Louise made after a four-way (publisher) auction: 
Louise's top ten tips for a submission letter include:
DON'T give up. It's easy to feel disheartened if you've received your #54?!6th rejection. But take heart in the fact that even the most well-known authors will have likely received rejections (J.K. Rowling is probably one of the most famous examples). Plus every agent is looking for something different and one agent's copper could be another agent's gold. So, don't give up. If you give up, how will you ever succeed?!
