Have your rep do it.
If you don't have a rep, either get one or you do it.
If you do have a rep and want to do it, coordinate with your rep and see what he/she thinks. I know plenty of repped people who also query and use their rep as a cover for submissions.
How else are you going to get read? Studios will rarely look at anything over the transom. If you don't get read you won't sell anything. That's a fact. What else can you do?
