Saritza🇵🇷💖💜💙 (Closed to queries) @epubagentReady for query critiques. Let’s do this! #atlantawritersconference #atlwc2019 ift.tt/2NcOksf pic.twitter.com/Wrc3qHNw9u
#querytip Include comps in your query but avoid using huge titles like Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, or Six of Crows. Instead, tell us how your book’s voice or themes will appeal to the audiences of those titles.
Authors: If you sign with an agency and have your query out to other agents, remember to pull the submission from those agents who still have it. #querytip
Your work may not be a good fit for my list or for our agency as a whole, that doesn’t mean it’s not publishable. Find the agent that really connects with the work & wants to champion it. Don’t re-query me with the same project I’ve already passed on. #querytip
Is your inciting incident clearly evident in your synopsis if it doesn’t happen within the initial 5-page sample? #querytip
A #querytip thread as I go through queries, and submissions today:
Your synopsis should show the beats of your plot. It is not a longer version of your query letter & should contain paragraphs (not just one block of text).
Make sure it’s engaging to read as well.
I will say it again and put you on blast this time, DO NOT MASS EMAIL AGENTS your unsolicited query, JERRY! It is an automatic delete! #querytip
Cortney Radocaj 🏳️🌈💖💜💙 @CortneyRadocajA common theme in my inbox today: beginnings starting in the wrong place.
The query builds a great inciting incident... and then the story begins AFTER that inciting incident has happened. In the aftermath of whatever kicks off the MC’s journey.
Authors: Please do NOT send your #query to my inbox. All queries must come through QueryManager. I delete all queries in my email. For your sake, and those who want to read your words, follow submission guidelines! #querytip
#querytip I’ve just deleted several queries in my email without reading any of them. Please follow submission guidelines. I don’t accept queries via email but am happy to receive them via QM: QueryMe.Online/Saritza
If your prologue is the length of your sample pages, perhaps rethink its need to be a prologue and not Chapter 1. Or pepper the backstory throughout the work instead. #querytip
Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13#amquerying #querytip Saying this again, do not send me stories about Fae or Fairies. It's just not me. pic.twitter.com/NDzXjX1m53
