#querytip : please only query 1 work at a time. Tell me about you, your ms, let me read a bit. I'll ask re:other wips if we seem to be a fit.

This is your reminder to always check an agency's website for submission guidelines before you click send on your query. #querytip

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · 1d

It still keeps happening, so let me say it again:Don't send your query as an attachment. Never send an attachment unless requested.#querytip

Don't give both real&pen names, especially if not specifying which is which. Confusing & unnecessary at this stage. I'll use real. #querytip

Showcasing platform is nice, and personality is even better. I want to know that me and the author could be friends… https://t.co/F0XBR9DATQ

I have such a love of dogs that if you put a stray in your first few pages and he's NOT being loved/rescued, I can't read it. #querytip

#QueryTip regarding genre = "thrilling science fiction" (like @JasonMHough ) is not the same thing as "thriller" (more like Dean Koontz).

#QueryTip = In an SF/F query, remember to introduce your characters, not just your world. (I see this mistake too often!)

Kelly Van Sant @bookishchick · 3d

Writers, please remember to include your name at the close of your query letter! I need to know who to address if I get in touch. #querytip

Today's #writingtip , #querytip : End pg 5, 10 and 50 w/ cliffhangers. That way, if agent asks for 1st 5 or 10 pgs w/ query... (1/2)

Great question, "can I query more than one agent at once?" Good reminder for New Year = YES! #pubtip (although not >1 per agency, usually)

Publishing PSA: You catch more flies with honey and "thank you" than you do with demands and indignation. #pubtip

Preemptive tweet: I do not want your fake news parody book. #pubtip
