"40,000-page book"? I really hope that's a typo! #querytip

I think the most common reason I pass on a query is that the manuscript isn't actually book-length. Under 60,000 words for an adult SFF novel is an automatic pass for me. #querytip

Related: if all the women in your novel are sex slaves, I'm probably not the agent for you. #querytip

They Made Me Have Sex With An Alien: not a genre I enjoy #querytip

Today's #querytip - don't write your query letter in ALL CAPS.

No, you can't promise that Hollywood will make a movie out of your book. Or that your book will be a bestseller. #querytip

I'm a really tough sell for retellings. #mswl #querytip

#querytip : As a feminist, I will not represent your book about how women are different than men. I know where your argument is going next.

Want to make your manuscript unique? Don't start it with your protagonist waking up. #querytip

Guys, I really don't represent picture books. Really! #querytip
