To get an idea of why I'll pass or request a sub, check out my feedback on #PassorPages winning entries. operationawesome6.blogspot.com #askagent

Please follow sub guidelines-I won't consider a sub in a zip file or as a password-protected file, b/c I won't open those files. #askagent

It's a good sign, when I'm in the middle of reading a full ms, that I'm already starting to draft a pitch in my head. #amreading #askagent

Recvd query w/11 comp titles in diff genres-2 titles in same genre/age grp as your ms is more helpful & less confusing. #askagent #querytip

And when authors have movies as comp titles in their query, I wonder if their mss are written like a movie rather than a book. #askagent

Lisa Abellera @LisaAbellera · 14 Jul 2016

When authors tell me what great movies their mss will make, I wonder if they understand my goal is to find a book not a movie. #askagent

Lisa Abellera @LisaAbellera · 12 Jul 2016

When an author's bio is substantially longer than the query itself, I find it's usually not a good sign for the ms. #askagent

Keep getting emails from authors who think literary agents are book marketers-these are totally different roles w/different goals. #askagent

I'm having an open call for middle grade subs & will be open to unsolic #MG queries From Apr 15 to May 15: ow.ly/10kgQF #askagent

Received query for "fictional novel" which is another vers of "fiction novel." Note, "novel"=work of fiction; no need to repeat. #askagent

Lisa Abellera @LisaAbellera · 7 Mar 2016

Passing on query w/less than 100 words but has 10+ grammar errors & 5+ spelling errors-I can imagine what the ms must look like. #askagent

A sure way to kill pacing/tension is having characters around a table, in a car, or on a plane just talking-nothing but talking #askagent

Last few mos recvd interesting subs but had to let most go-have to really love the book to invest months or even years to sell it. #askagent
