need help with my Sci Fi query letter

Ken, this sounds like a brilliant story. I'm a fan of your concepts, though I still haven't read your books, to be honest. Anyway, here's my formula for querying (I'm also a Sci Fi writer):

1- A single paragraph short pitch or synopsis. I noticed they're not fans of long winded synopses. Make it concise.

2- Why you're qualified to write this story, and what purpose does it deliver. Based on what. Keep this short too.

3- Your author bio, i.e. what or where you've been published. Name the books, awards..etc. (also, short and quick, no life stories)

4- Word count and whatever else they've instructed in their submission guidelines.
