.@idreamofweird Very similar. Epic maybe a little bigger in scope. Doesn't matter much. #asklda

.@fashionnovelist Focus on 3 main characters. One paragraph on each; hint at how stories come together. That's how I pitch epics. #asklda

.@fashionnovelist Yep, it's partly having a great book and partly luck. #asklda

#AskLDA Is there anything particular on your #MSWL right now?

.@sebastian_lk I would also be up for a really brilliant historical (medieval mystery etc.) or gorgeous literary fantasy. #asklda

…mostly the problem is new book isn't something I love enough. #asklda

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 1 Oct 2015

Questions about word count, low sales track on previous books: honestly, won't matter if I LOVE the book. But… #asklda

.@SeeSaraScribe …then after signing I do an editorial read and write notes. Can take a couple of weeks depending on other work #asklda

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 1 Oct 2015

.@SeeSaraScribe I start editorial notes right away (as soon as I can). Usually have notes in mind from first read-through… #asklda

.@KKMHOO None of us are no-response-means-no. If no answer, follow up to make sure query wasn't lost. #asklda

.@KOsbornSullivan A new pen name can help with low previous sales; that's something to work out with your agent. #asklda

General comment: a lot of ppl ask about wordcount. Problem is usually that very long/short wordcount exposes problems in MS. #asklda

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 1 Oct 2015

.@SeeSaraScribe Varies depending on genre. I've done everywhere from 6 to 45. #asklda

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 1 Oct 2015

So relieved that @jjohnsonblalock and I are agreeing when we both tweet answers to someone… #asklda
