#querytip: if an agent asks for an R&R on a Monday and you resubmit on a Thursday, you didn't revise enough. I promise you, you didn't.

I am so over "I teach teenagers, so of course I can write for them!" That's not how any of this works. #querytip

Don't send your query return receipt requested or certified mail. It's weird. #querytip

"The idea came to me in a dream/ rage induced blackout/ hallucinogenic dive into consciousness." #Querytip this is not the time to share.

#querytip: if subject line is just "query," my Outlook strangely/ automatically files emails together in giant folder. Add more to subject.

#querytip: don't overload on the buzzwords. Islam, Holocaust, cyber crime, Vatican, terrorist, cancer etc. in one query? I'm tired now.
