If your manuscript is not complete, or if it's the first draft, DON'T SEND IT TO AN AGENT. Finish the manuscript. Revise the manuscript. POLISH the manuscript. You get one shot to make a first impression. Don't blow it. #querytip #pubtip

#querytip: If your query reads like soundbites from movie trailers, you're doing it wrong. While a "non-stop thrill ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat & leaving you gasping for more" may work for the @Avengers, it doesn't make me want to read your mss.
