I'm feeling especially hungry right now for just about anything set in dark Victorian London. #MSWL #BringIt

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jul 30

Out of most recent requests: 2 YA contemporary, 2 women's fiction, 1 suspense out of about 20 queries total, which is a higher rate of "yes" than usual for me! #querystats #keepemcoming #positivemondayvibes

#querystats I'm currently caught up on queries and have responded to all requested materials sent before June 1st. #amagenting

#pubtip Don't immediately accept an offer of rep, even if it's your dream agent. You'll do yourself a disservice. Take a week to contact other agents. See if there's more interest, even if just to put first offer into context. Don't give up the opportunity to weigh all options.

I've created an #MSWL Pinterest board. Head on over and check it out:

@TLSherwood1 @BookEndsJessica #AskAgent Since I am curious about the answer.

Replying to @canuckclick

Yes, I would check the agent website. If they do not have a "no reply means no" policy then look to see if they have an estimated response time listed and check in after that period of time has passed. #askagent

What's a day in the life of an agent like? #askagent

Replying to @_ShanNawaz

But really, we spend a lot of time on the phone, answering emails, reviewing contracts... Most of the submission reading and client revisions (for me, anyway) comes at night or on the weekend. #askagent

@BookEndsJessica What are your thoughts on using a book the agent represents as a comp? (For context: they're similar in voice/style, but not in theme/plot) #askagent

Replying to @books_by_julia

This is great, as long as it's accurate. I get a lot queries referencing my clients' works when it's clear they don't really know anything about the book and there's no similarity. #askagent

Chelsea Covington Maass @chelseasfiction

@BookEndsJessica What's your current dream submission? #askagent

Replying to @chelseasfiction

Ohhh... I'd love commercial women's fiction with a dual timeline ala Kate Morton. Also compelling YA, WF or romance with diverse characters, that doesn't sacrifice plot for themes. #askagent

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jun 26

The elements that pushed me to request these 5 were: setting, magical realism element, pop culture references that resonated with me. #querytip #amagenting

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jun 26

#querystats 28 queries read: 8 YA, 7 WF, 5 Suspense, 5 Romance, 3 Get Fiction. 5 requested: 2 Gen Fiction, 2 WF, 1 YA. (2 of them intrigued me w/ titles first) #amagenting

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jun 22

#MSWL YA and WF featuring an immigrant family facing current social issues.

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jun 22

#MSWL I'd love to see YA or adult suspense focusing on the dark side of technology ala "Black Mirror."

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jun 21

#querystats Of the 26 queries I rejected about...
30% were because querier didn't understand their audience/genre
30% were because I didn't see enough story/plot
20% were because the idea didn't sound marketable
20% were because didn't feel different enough #amagenting #querytip

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jun 21

#querystats 29 queries read: 3 YA, 7 WF, 4 Romance, 5 Suspense, 10 General Fiction. 3 requested: 1 Suspense, 1 WF, 1 YA (FYI -- All the requests happened to mention seeing my #MSWL somewhere) #amagenting

Kim Lionetti @BookEndsKim · Jun 3

#QueryTip: Many queries I'm seeing spend lots of time highlighting how the book fits themes on my #MSWL. Great! BUT I also need to see you have a strong plot, or it's a reject for me. Those themes are at the top of my wishlist, but only when attached to a great story. #amagenting

For all of you finishing up your WIPs this holiday weekend, I'm reposting my #MSWL blog. I'm caught up on all queries and have responded to requested materials sent before April 15th. bookendsliterary.com/2018/03/07/kim…

Today's running away from me a bit, so I'm not sure I'll get a chance to peruse #DVpit. But I'm hungry for all diverse and #ownvoices books in #WF #Rom and #YA. #Dis is especially close to my heart. Query me here: QueryMe.Online/1008 #MSWL
