Let's say you had multiple offers for a project, picked an agent, & told the others NO. If over time things go sour with your chosen one and that relationship ends, you can query the other agents again with a future project. It's a business. I don't feel jilted. #querytip

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · Mar 6

It is NEVER a promising sign when your query starts by alluding to the fact that this book is one of 80 you have written and completed. #querytip #amquerying #agentlife It makes me worry about things. Just query the book you want me to rep and don't mention the other 79.

A question writers SHOULD ask when they interview an agent for representation is: "What's your response time, when I'm your client, to my emails?" When you're their client & they habitually don't keep that time frame, fire them! #querytip #agentlife

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 15 Nov 2017

A typical question by writers when they interview an agent for representation is "Are you an editorial agent?" When you get the answer, a great follow up question would be: "Can you give me a specific example?" #querytip #agentlife

EVERY writer should watch: ASK THE DEBUTS w/ Bree Barton,@_KimChance , and #TeamTriada 's @DanaLDavis ! Brilliant advice and inspiration. #pubtip #querytip #amwriting #amediting #writerslife It is in three parts, and you NEED to watch ALL three parts. youtube.com/watch?v=0KNkio…

A typical question by writers when they interview an agent for representation is "How many clients do you have?" When you get the answer, a great follow up question would be: "How many of those were your clients two years ago?" #querytip #agentlife

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 6 Nov 2017

Dear writers, don't start your query with telling me I need to sign an NDA before you can submit. Crazy. #querytip #pubtip #agentlife

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 6 Nov 2017

Dear writers,don't query me with eight novels at the same time. Pick one. #querytip #pubtip #agentlife P.S. also don't query 8 within 24 hrs

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 24 Oct 2017

#querytip for one #subtweet : Don't harass my agents. If you do, I will get angry. You don't want me angry. I won't tolerate harassment.

A forever classic from my "nutcases" folder from people who didn't handle rejection all that gracefully. #querytip #pubtip #agentlife

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 17 Sep 2017

When you write your query all in third person, at least *I* think that's weird. Uwe doesn't like that. #querytip #pubtip #agentlife

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 22 Aug 2017

Today, in flight, I received a query from a person whose email name is "Supreme Wisdom." Be professional when you query. #querytip #pubtip

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 9 Aug 2017

Here's mine: don't start your query to me with questions. I don't feel like answering questions, and I will reject no matter what #querytip

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 8 Aug 2017

Why?!? Just why??? Please. Don't. Not today, not ever. #querytip #pubtip #agentlife

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 30 Jun 2017

I showed this to @btaylorbooks a month ago to verify this happened. @laurenspieller @MalloryCBrown... Not just you. #don't #querytip

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 24 Jun 2017

The week is almost over. Time to share another "nutcase" nugget.This was the beginning of a query. Don't. #querytip #pubtip #agentlife
