Megan ☃️ Is Closed To Queries!
Naomi Davis, literary agent @NaomisLitPixA quick #querytip: be specific!
Don't end your query with, "She must risk everything and face the thing she fears most."
Instead try, like, "She must risk her (job/ego/life) face the thing she fears most: (losing her position/her high school bully/an actual soulsucking demon)."

I've seen an uptick of adult queries in my inbox.
Please don't send these to me! I only accept middle grade and young adult stories!
J.Elle @AuthorJ_ElleNO ONE REALLY TALKS ABOUT SUB
1 YEAR ago today I went on sub for the 1st time w/ the book of my heart. & while I cant remove the veil completely on an industry I’m barely dipping my pinky toe in, going to try to shine light where there’s so much shadow.
Megan Manzano 🌸 @Megan_ManzanoI've been seeing a lot of submissions in my querybox that either don't list an anticipated audience for the manuscript or lists every audience.
Let's talk about why narrowing audience is important.
