#querytip Try reverse-engineering the pitch. What does an agent want? What's your big selling point (the conflict or question)? #amquerying

#querytip Most of the queries I see have great potential but are still rough drafts. Revise before you submit. I want to love your project.

#querytip Please use a standard font (Arial, Times New Roman) when querying. Italics and fancy fonts are difficult to read. #amquerying

I receive a lot of submissions where the protagonist withholds key information, a device to create tension and suspense. #querytip (1/2)

I see many resubmissions with same opening pages and few changes. Instead, try reworking the scene. Use a fresh start to hook me. #querytip

I want to like your revision and see that my feedback inspired you to elevate your work. If so, then maybe I'm the agent for you. #querytip

#querytip #revisingtip If you are striking out with your current query, try reworking the opening scene with a new inciting incident.

Give yourself time between each query round to rethink your strategy and pitch, revise, etc. (4/5) #querytip #amquerying #amwriting

Send queries in rounds, adhering to each agent’s guidelines. Don’t send all at once, so you can revise between rounds. (1/5) #querytip

#querytip To research an agent's style: Look for blog or podcast interviews. Go to conferences. Follow on agents on Twitter, etc. #amquering

If you aren't hearing from agents: Give yourself time between each sub round to rethink strategy/pitch and revise. #amquerying #querytip
