I LOVE it when a query is short, around 500 words or so, and the writer brilliantly includes: appropriate greeting, hook, genre, length, protagonists, conflict, comps, info about them, appropriate sign off. #querytip

#querytip #lifehack Kindness goes a long way in work, and in life. Rudeness will sooner OR later backfire. It may not seem like it at the moment, but it will.

Let's say you had multiple offers for a project, picked an agent, & told the others NO. If over time things go sour with your chosen one and that relationship ends, you can query the other agents again with a future project. It's a business. I don't feel jilted. #querytip

It is NEVER a promising sign when your query starts by alluding to the fact that this book is one of 80 you have written and completed. #querytip #amquerying #agentlife It makes me worry about things. Just query the book you want me to rep and don't mention the other 79.

A question writers SHOULD ask when they interview an agent for representation is: "What's your response time, when I'm your client, to my emails?" When you're their client & they habitually don't keep that time frame, fire them! #querytip #agentlife

A typical question by writers when they interview an agent for representation is "Are you an editorial agent?" When you get the answer, a great follow up question would be: "Can you give me a specific example?" #querytip #agentlife

A typical question by writers when they interview an agent for representation is "How many clients do you have?" When you get the answer, a great follow up question would be: "How many of those were your clients two years ago?" #querytip #agentlife

Dear writers, don't start your query with telling me I need to sign an NDA before you can submit. Crazy. #querytip #pubtip #agentlife

#querytip for one #subtweet : Don't harass my agents. If you do, I will get angry. You don't want me angry. I won't tolerate harassment.

When you write your query all in third person, at least *I* think that's weird. Uwe doesn't like that. #querytip #pubtip #agentlife

Today, in flight, I received a query from a person whose email name is "Supreme Wisdom." Be professional when you query. #querytip #pubtip
