OTOH: Sending a query that follows my guidelines, AND mentions the security situation in Israel is really professional. #tenqueries 2/2

Sending a query that does not follow my submission guidelines does not make me predisposed to treat you professionally. #tenqueries 1/2

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Q1: YA Fantasy. I like the concept but don't connect to the writing. Bummer. #tenqueries

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Q10: Thriller. Sounds a bit esoteric from the query, also word count is low. Author has lost me. Can't figure writing out. Pass. #tenqueries

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Q9: MG fantasy. Interesting plot. Awesome credentials. If author can pull this off I'm in. Writing's good. Full request. #tenqueries

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Q8: YA SciFi. Iimpressed with the author's credentials but this just doesn't sound like a book for me. Pass. #tenqueries

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Q7: Query tells me nothing about the genre, wordcount or plot. This is not looking good. Pages don't grab me either. Pass. #tenqueries

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Q4: Fantasy. Word count is a bit too short and it also reads a little too new-agey for me. Pass. #tenqueries

Rena Bunder Rossner @renarossner · 16 Jun 2014

Q3: Literary magical realism. Definitely a genre I'm interested in. Not in love with plot though. Pass. #tenqueries
