P16: SF MG. Good writing, but the story wasn't for me--not quite playful or dark enough. Pass read: 7 pgs #100queries

100. Crime Fiction. Another genre I don’t represent. #100Queries

99. MG Realistic. Pitch focuses on the main character being bullied at school. Which is very common in MG stories. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

98. Adult Horror. Not something I’m looking for. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

97. YA Science Fiction. I’ve seen this query before, and there’s no mention of changes having been made. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

96. MG Adventure. This is one of those times when too many ideas are smooshed into one story. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

95.YA Fantasy. Already self-published, so nothing I can really do at this point. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

94. Picture Book. No query letter at all, just a manuscript pasted into the email. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

93. Picture Book. No pitch. Query goes over the inspiration behind the book, but not what the book is about. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

92. Literary Fiction. Pitch focuses on all the things it is not, which doesn’t help me understand the premise of the book. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

90. YA Fantasy. Pitch is really short (three sentences) and doesn’t even hint at what makes it different from other books. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

89. YA Contemporary. This pitch doesn’t give enough information. It sets up the characters ok, but doesn’t go any futher. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

87. YA Thriller. The pitch is really confusing. Too much information that doesn’t link together. #100Queries

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 22 Jul 2016

86. MG Magical Realism. I really love this premise! Some unusual things going on here. #100Queries
