Here's a #querytip: don't query in the voice of your main character, especially if they're a murderer.

Here’s a #querytip: read the submission guidelines for the agent you’re interested in. Check their agency website and don’t go by any secondhand source telling you how to approach them.

Using racist language is never going to make me want to read your work. Even if you're condemning racism. Nope. #querytip

Don't think you need a subject line? I have never requested more material from a query w/o a subject. #querytip

Here's a #querytip: please keep a spreadsheet/list of agents queried so you don't send the same thing to someone who already passed on it.

I ask for the 1st 20 pages bec I want to see a sample of your writing. If you don't include them, it's automatically a pass. #querytip

There are resources available to define sub-categories of mystery, romance, and SFF. Use them to find the right agent 4 u. #querytip

Know what genre your book actually is, and what an agent reps. Don't understand the terminology? Research it! #querytip

If you've already pubbed your book, I probably can't do anything for that same book. So, query first please. #querytip

Help me see how good you are. Follow my submission guidelines and tell me about your story. The plot. Not how to feel abt it. #querytip

I just got a query that told me how to feel about the query, was super long, and included no pages. It did not grab me. #querytip

If the word query is not in my email address, you've sent your query to the wrong place. #querytip

You all know that commenting on an agent's physical appearance in a query is not a good idea, right? #querytip
