Doing on last query shot out. Beautiful writing, but ADULT. When your natural comps are adult, then you might need to look closer at your MS. #querytip

I have been known to ask for a second manuscript when looking at novels. It always helps to have a second querable on ready. #querytip

For people in the back: Email submissions will not be considered. #querytip

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 4 Oct 2017

This may be a personal thing, but please don't query if you don't have title for your manuscript. #querytip

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 25 Aug 2017

#querytip I work for BookEnds. So if I see another agency name in your query, that tells me you are sloppy with revisions.

Does your day job matter to an agent? #kidlit #writing #publishing

If you write NF, yes, your day job can matter to me. But for the most part, the fact that you have a day job is not a deal breaker #querytip

Authors, unless it is a Twitter pitch event, refrain from pitching to an agent on Twitter. It is awkward. Just query. #querytip

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 30 Jul 2017

Okay #querytip time: if you get an offer, and let me know, make sure to send me the manuscript when I request it. Especially tight deadlines

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 28 Jul 2017

#querytip If you are referred by someone, it is probably a good idea to explain the connection.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 13 Jul 2017

#querytip Please don't query book 2, 3, etc in a series. Always start with book 1 or a new book if you self-publish.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 7 Jul 2017

Authors, if your manuscript is more than 100K words, seriously look at how to cut word count. #querytip

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 7 Jul 2017

#querytip Most agents have a large workload. If you send a query, please be patient and don't follow up on Twitter to publicly ask. Bad form

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 5 Jul 2017

So #querytip if you find an agent in the wild, enjoying a holiday, respect their free time and don't pitch them your book.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 1 Jul 2017

#querytip if your audience is 12-18, that YA, not MG. MG is 8-12.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 21 Jun 2017

There is hardly ever a reason for a 110K YA novel. #querytip

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 6 Jun 2017

Authors, please include sample pages of your manuscript. Otherwise, it is straight to the pass pile. #querytip
