#pubtip for real, a man called the offices, seemingly unaware of what agents do/are, and he was rude to our assistant, rude to me, called me "baby" repeatedly despite my asking him not and then I think was trying to threaten me? And literally all he had to do was google it.

#pubtip If you are reaching out to agents, you should *already* know what they do and their guidelines. There are myriad online forums, guides, articles, websites about what a literary agent does and how they want to be contacted. Please read those BEFORE you reach out.

you know how even a slice of pretty bad pizza is better than no pizza? That rule DOES NOT APPLY to agents, editors, and publishers. #pubtip

the old "we'll just send it to every editor we can and see what sticks. If it doesn't sell, no harm done." ... Wrong. Harm Done. #pubtip

that time I wanted to tweet something truly inappropriate and unprofessional? I didn't do it. TAKE NOTE! #pubtip
