The more typos & mistakes in your ms, the longer it takes your agent to read/edit it. Do a good proofread before sending, please! #PubTip

This seems like an obvious #pubtip but sign your #query with your name! I can’t believe how many queries I get without the author’s name.

I want the author to take what I’ve shown them and use it to correct the same mistakes elsewhere. It concerns me if they don’t. #pubtip 2/2

I look for growth after an R&R. If I’ve edited typos & grammar, I want those mistakes fixed in the revised manuscript. #pubtip 1/2
