Grawlix Guy @nounsequiturWhat is one (or more) question authors don't ask enough that they should start asking? #askprintrun
Ask about long-term career vision (not just money, a deal). Think about personality-matching and the day-to-day work #askprintrun
Zoë Fleischer @zoequeenperil#askprintrun When an author has an online platform, what do you look for and what deters you from wanting to work with them?
I'm mostly looking for reach + engagement. The only thing that deters me is if they're spammy or a Trump supporter #askprintrun
DECEMBIRD @printrunpodcastI personally am focused on the one being pitched. I want to work with an entire future career, but that requires a first book #askprintrun twitter.com/TiffanyLeaElme…
Ditto. It's not required that an author has like, 4 books written #askprintrun
Tiffany Lea Elmer @TiffanyLeaElmer#askprintrun Why agenting in the publishing industry? What called you to this over other in industry jobs?
I thought I was going to be an editor. Then I realized I loved dev work and long-term career planning! #askprintrun
Tiffany Lea Elmer @TiffanyLeaElmer#askprintrun Do either of you do R&Rs? What makes you R&R over reject and what is the decision maker when getting it back?
I wish I could tell you some great Rule for this, but it's mostly gut. If I need to re-read after edits, and I need it, I offer #askprintrun
Anup 📝📚 @anuponthenet#askprintrun do twitter pitch contestants liked by agents have to write the query letter, or just a cover letter with sample chapters ?
Repeat after me, everyone: ALWAYS SEND A QUERY. ALWAYS. If only to help us refamiliarize ourselves with the story #askprintrun
Krystal Norton 🎄 @writingwordsoup#askprintrun @LZats @erikhane Recently I was told my query format was wrong. Should I restyle my query for that specific agent?
Query formatting is essentially industry-standard. Do some research and see if yours is off! #askprintrun
Rachel P. Hazel @rachelphazelCan you talk ab online Twitter pitch/mentor contests? How worthwhile are they, or are they a huge distraction? #askprintrun
I find lots of clients that way--but it's not good for everyone. If you're good at log lines, go for it! If not, sit out. #askprintrun
ZR "Killer of Darlings" Ellor @ZREllor#askprintrun For Laura: should I pitch LGBT erotic romance as OV, or it will it sound like I'm pitching an inappropriate memoir?
If you want to identify yourself in your query, I'd mention that you are a <insert identity here> author. That'll work better! #askprintrun
Merricatmas! 🎄 @emkayandersIf an author receives an offer of rep, what notice should she give other agents who have the manuscript? A week feels short! #askprintrun
1-2 weeks in standard. We'll hustle if we're excited, but you may lose out on people who are busy #askprintrun
