The Hugos define a novel as 40,000 words or more...I find that publishers want at least 80,000 words. #querytip Anyone back me up on this?

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

To go w/ my previous #querytip , there is no need to start a query w/ "I am seeking representation for..." just by querying, I know that.

#querytip Always try to include MC age in the query. And none of this "twenty-something-year-old" nonsense. You know their age or you don't

Justin Wells @Justin_941 · 2d

I have what I am seeking CLEARLY outlined on my profile page (link in bio). Please don't query me with genres not listed there... #querytip

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 2d

Rant over. Sorry, Twitter world. But, UGH. Too much hate in the world today. Don't send it to my query box… https://t.co/xblJojQapc

News flash you're NOT more important. Not allowed to treat people as beneath you. Don't waste time/sub to me if you think that way #querytip

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 2d

I'm furious seeing someone yell at another for doing NOTHING wrong. You f'd up. You felt too important to give correct materials #querytip

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 2d

Also "Chance to make lots of $". Not why I'm in this industry. You're the sort I don't want to see in publishing #querytip #amquerying

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 2d

Made yourself look unprofessional, rude, ignorant, and difficult to work with. All very easy reasons to say no. (3/?) #querytip #amquerying

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 2d

Don't care about your fancy creds/past success. If I see you cussing out my intern, NO ONE at the agency will work w/ you (2/?) #querytip

Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13 · 2d

DO NOT tell people to go F themselves when they simply ask you to send in ALL materials in our guidelines! (1/?) #querytip #amquerying

Justin Wells @Justin_941 · 2d

Be confident in your story when you send a query, but don't tell me why your story is so much better than others in your genre. #querytip

#querytip If you're querying & change your email address for some reason, let agents know. Every once in awhile I get emails bouncing back.
