Q10 is a political thriller about the disappearance of some senators. Nice thought but not my cup of tea. :) #tenqueries

Q7 is by an author whose last name is Murakami. DON'T TEASE ME. (At 7k words, it is too short.) #tenqueries

Q5 is described as "feminine fiction" (what's that?), has several misplaced commas, and opening lines are too gothic #tenqueries

Q1. SF YA taking place on another planet. The market is soft for SF YA and this one isn't convincing enough. #tenqueries
