When an author inserts "XXXX" for their synopsis, a required field on my QM sub form, rather than make an effort to properly answer, it says a lot about what it'd be like to work w/that author. Not having yet read their ms, I'm already starting out with a "no" in mind. #querytip

Also, if you feel this way about agents, publishing and books, whether or not you include it in your query, please do not bother querying me. I can tell you right now, if this is what you think, we are definitely not a fit. #askagent #querytip #pubtip

Before sending your ms, make sure itโ€™s not the "track changes" version w/comments, which make it difficult to engage in the story. #querytip

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

No need to say queried elsewhere-it's a given. Only need to advise if oth agents offered rep or if editors offered pub. #querytip #pubtip

Just want to clear up a myth about subs: Courier font is NOT required. Those Mad Men days are over. #pubtip #querytip ow.ly/OSCjg

It's a myth that self-publishing to get reviews will help when querying agents. If self-pubbed we won't look at it. #pubtip #querytip

If you've sent a partial ms, and an agent requests a full, the rest of your book should already be written. #pubtip #querytip
