What is your character's "Part of Your World" ballad? Show us what they want so we can root for them to get it.…

Trust me. I'm hoping I adore your work almost as much as you are. It's a slow, subjective process, but it really can work. #querytip

Make your characters lovable, relatable, and root-for-able. If we don't care what happens to them, the plot doesn't matter. #querytip

#querytip "Query one agent with multiple manuscripts" is not a clever way to skirt the "don't query multiple agents at the same agency" rule

Thread!!! Writers, editors, pay attention to this conversation. So important. #WeNeedDiverseBooks #diversepubs

Hey uh, #querytip : Don't send me a query with a screed in it about how queries are beneath you and agents have ruined writing, k?

Here's @ml_keller on why + how you should avoid being vague in your pitches and query letters:…

Phrase I see a lot in queries: "____ must risk everything." Try replacing "everything" w/ the thing that's specific to your MC. #querytip

I love how I just read through your entire query and still know nothing about your manuscript... I know your achievements though! #querytip

"Hi I'm *insert name* and I'm going to now tell you all about my life and current situation..." *Bangs head on table* #querytip #nogrammar

Make sure you give us the length of your manuscript in word count, NOT pages! Especially because pages differ... #querytip
