Amanda Isabel Ramirez: Human Furby @AmandaIsA_RamSome context for anyone thinking "just buy everything..."
Agents send me good shit that I attempt to prioritize (by sub date? excitement level? what I have less of? which is going fastest? still working that one out) & choose between.
It's a Never Ending Struggle, my good folx. twitter.com/AmandaIsA_Ram/…
This is a fantastic breakdown of the very difficult decision editors make when acquiring works and in some ways similar to the way agents approach queries as well. #pubtip
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksI was supposed to be at a conference this weekend, so I gave a talk to the only audience available.

Sarah ★★★★★ Nicolas 🏳️🌈 @Sarah_NicolasYes, people are STILL arguing with my suggestion that aspiring writers read ONE recent book. One. Not one hundred. Not to never read older books. Not write a book exactly like that one. Just read one recent book. And they cannot handle it. I'm flabbergasted twitter.com/Sarah_Nicolas/…
You should be reading on the genre you write and reading current titles to understand the voice and the themes important to that audience/market. #pubtip

No one likes to write synopses but it’s a piece of the puzzle that really help me decide whether I want to read more of work or not. #pubtip
Julia Alexandra Weber @JAWeberEditsPersonally, I prefer a query letter to be 300-350 words (+-10%). For me that's a good length. Not too long, not too short. Fellow agents?
There’s no such thing as an erotic YA. It's either New Adult, Adult or pedophile porn. Only 2 of those 3 are publishable. #pubtip
