Hey, it’s July 2018 and I’m STILL not the agent to query with anything remotely tied to 50 SHADES OF GREY. #querytip

Saritza☕️Hernandez @epubagent · Jun 11

When including comps in your #query, do not include books you admit to never reading. It’s likely, they’re not comparable in any way to your work. #querytip

Great post from Hannah Fergessen (@HannahFergesen) about the importance of making your sample pages and manuscript strong. It's not just about the query. #querytip publishingcrawl.com/2018/05/18/the…

Our agency has submission guidelines for a reason. Please don’t query me outside of QueryManager or you will be wasting your time. #querytip

Please do not "dare me" to request pages in your query. I don't take kindly to threats. Even passive aggressive ones. #querytip

When I pass on a work saying I couldn’t connect with the writing, it’s usually because I’m given flat writing. Characters I can barely see set against a beige background with little to no stakes. What are they feeling? Make me feel it too! pic.twitter.com/VFMaptAGZV

My clients will attest to my returning work to them with questions like, “why are they feeling this way?” and “how does this make them feel?” I want to experience the sting of rejection with your character. Want to shed tears of joy with them at their success. #querytip

#querytip I’m not the agent to send manuscripts featuring marital affairs. Yes, they happen but I just don’t like anything having MCs cheating in the storyline. Unless it’s at cards.

Saritza☕️Hernandez @epubagent · 18 Oct 2017

When #amediting your ms for publication make sure to address repetitive phrases & crutch words. #querytip

Saritza☕️Hernandez @epubagent · 11 Oct 2017

Avoid first lines that sound like “It was a dark and stormy night.” Unless you’re Snoopy, of course. #Querytip

#querytip Don’t forget to include your name in the query letter. I’d like to reply to you by name.

I rep #romance so please make sure you feature a HEA or HFN in the work. If hero dies, that's not a romance. #querytip

Saritza☕️Hernandez @epubagent · 30 Sep 2017

I am DEFINITELY not the person to query w/ anything remotely tied to White Nationalism. That's not the #OwnVoices I'm looking for. #querytip

Saritza☕️Hernandez @epubagent · 30 Sep 2017

I'm a huge character-driven-story reader. If your MC is flat, and ms is riddled with passive voice, I'm going to pass on it. #querytip

Saritza☕️Hernandez @epubagent · 30 Sep 2017

Please don't send query to my personal email if I haven't previously requested it. They just get deleted. Follow sub guidelines. #querytip
