#ASKDLG Would U take on a writer who has been repped before? Also if the novel was repped previously? Thank you!

@Marinarichards to the first question, yes. To the second, depends. Hard to say. #AskDLG

#ASKDLG Do all MS usually end up edited and revised somewhat as it leaves you and is published?

@AveryAdamms yes, but it's small things like adding/deleting scenes or SPAG. Polishing it to the best it can be :) #AskDLG

@Imaginarialist Not sure how to answer this in twitter word count allotment. We base our initial decision on writing/project 1/2 #AskDLG

What are some SFF books that you've enjoyed lately? #AskDLG

@adanawashington This is a great question for @NobleValerie #AskDLG

Stacey Donaghy @DonaghyLiterary · Jan 12 2016

If you pick up a client and later on they write something for a genre you're not interested in. Would you still rep it? #AskDLG

@jltoman83 If the writing and story is amazing we would definitely consider it. Our goal is to rep for career of that writer #AskDLG

#askdlg Can you tell what kind of person a writer is by their query & does it influence your decision on the sub material?

@Imaginarialist what influences me the most is the writing sample #AskDLG

Stacey Donaghy @DonaghyLiterary · Jan 12 2016

@DonaghyLiterary @NobleValerie I've two novels to query simultaneously. Is it wrong to pseudonym and query them separately?

@AlexanderSD89 @NobleValerie We ask for one sub at a time. Behold if we love your work we will find out it is you Bwaaah, haa, haa #AskDLG

Apart from getting a client's book published what is the most amazing/invigorating/satisfying part of your job? #AskDLG

@KAKraft I love collaborating with an author and I love being in the DLG query box. Hunting for that unique special story & talent #AskDLG

How do you handle difficult situations, such as not selling your client's book no matter the level of your efforts? #AskDLG

@KAKraft Each case is individual to client and specific work, really depends. #AskDLG

@KAKraft It happens. We keep going, maybe focus on a new project or re-evaluate. #AskDLG

Hi! Do you ever ask authors to revise and resubmit after making a request, and how do you decide? Thanks! #askdlg

@ElissaDickey Sometimes. When I cannot let go of story but it needs further development. So not a pass but not an offer yet.#AskDLG
