I have an upcoming blog post on why preorders are important. In the meantime, published authors, once your book is available for preorder it's no longer "coming soon" on your website. It's "preorder now" #pubtip

I get a lot of queries for books targeting "to both adults and young adults." It's not. You are targeting one age group or another. Young adults read up, adults read down, but no book is written for both markets. #pubtip

16 hours of flying means I got lots of reading in. I’m up to 45 books (not for work) this year & every book has improved my agent skills. If you’re not reading, you shouldn’t be writing (or agenting). #amwriting #pubtip

Good morning Twitter! If you haven't yet seen the new @bookendslit YouTube channel check it out. More great information from @bookendslit agents. #pubtip youtube.com/channel/UCukLk… #askagent

Cover copy makes a difference. Even when books are free. Authors, ask to see cover copy before it's final. #pubtip #bookexpo17

A lot of very vague queries this week. Need the details that make you stand out. #pubtip

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 19 Feb 2016

Unless you've been previously published don't query your book until it's complete #pubtip

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 15 Jan 2016

Whether or not the agent asks, please always send a synopsis with your requested material. #pubtip

My last #pubtip for 2015. Hold off on querying BookEnds agents until the new year. We're resting, relaxing & catching up.

Querying Authors: When compiling list of agents to query where do you get your information?Best sources of agent lists? #pubtip

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 17 Apr 2015

When following-up on submissions use the same email trail. It helps agents find material faster. #pubtip
