Laura Crockett ☕️ @LECrockettGot used to Lauren Crockett & Laura Spieller, but Lara Krocket takes the cake. Double check the name of the agent you're querying! #querytip
Also, it's dangerous to say "I didn't see guidelines on your site."

Tara Sim 🌟 CHAINBREAKER RELEASES JAN 2! @EachStarAWorldWriting tip: if you're about to start a WIP, write a query for it first. It'll force you to figure out what the story's main focus is.
Take this #querytip seriously. 👏🏼
Leon Husock @LeonHusockPlease, do not send me a link to a google doc that has your query in it. Do not do this. #querytip
Also do not send a link to a google doc that has your sample pages, synopsis, partial, manuscript...
Agents avoid links. #querytip
Leon Husock @LeonHusockA query that doesn't follow guidelines is more than a nuisance, it says a lot of bad things about what you'd be like to work with. #querytip
Guidelines are there like instructions for an exam. Follow them, and you're far more likely to succeed. #querytip

Laura Crockett ☕️ @LECrockettToo often SFF queries focus on the protagonist's cool abilities and/or the world instead of the conflict/driving force/plot. (1/2)
