DO pitch a book. DO pitch a book as standalone with series potential. DO NOT pitch a series in one fell swoop. #querytip

Read Query Shark. Befriend published authors & ask questions. Utilize critique partners, too! Every bit helps in finding an agent. #querytip

Unless an agent asked for a R&R, it's best not to query again with the exact same MS you queried months ago. #querytip We remember them...

Never ever ever ever EVER send an eblast query. We can see all those CC's. We can spot when we're a BCC. Just don't. Automatic no. #querytip
