So #querytip, if you're sending to multiple agents in submissions (esp back to back) & you personalize by name but not the rest of your query, we notice. So if all three agents "have an interest in...." when we don't, you don't look great. Take that extra effort, it will show.
Hi loves, it helps you to personalize your query. I know it feels like an extra hoop, but it shows you're doing your research & being thoughtful re: your work & career. When you query w/o naming an agent & it's a bcc, we see that. & again when you bcc a mass followup. #querytip
Hey so this is definitely a some agents thing, not an all agents thing, but if sub guidelines are to email submissions, pls don’t email me at My email unless I ask you to. There are lots of different reasons for this, but they all fall under please follow sub guidelines #querytip
Susan, A Graham @GrahamophonesHere's a thing, friends. I have sold books in the last year (more than I was expecting in my first year selling books! It's been nice!). But none of those books are coming out until 2020. When you write you admire my work & success, it tells me you haven't done your research.
Susan, A Graham @GrahamophonesLoves, if you query a submissions inbox, please don't say you don't know the names of any agents at that agency. Literally you just have to go to the website, look at the bios, and pick somebody to address. It's such a small thing that goes such a long way. #querytip #subtip
