Britt Siess @BrittSiessI'm starting to get through the queries that came in while I was on vacation, and I'm noticing a trend where writers say their book "is intended for X audience but could also appeal to this completely other audience" (Adult then MG) or is a "Thriller but also a Fantasy" #querytip
When I read this, it just signals to me that you don't really know where your book belongs (on the shelf). If it's a YA thriller, throw all of your pitching weight behind that! No book is for every audience! Trying to appeal to every market weakens your pitch. #querytip
