Writers: don't go against your own self interest: always query multiple agents, don't give exclusives. #querytip #agentlife

Consider your query as a professional application letter. Breaking the general conventions isn't smart or cute. It's detrimental. #querytip.

When a "rejected" writer responds to me with an email to tell me what a mediocre agent I am. YOU queried me, Einstein. #agentlife #querytip

As a querier, I'd never grant an agent an exclusive.If they wanted it badly enough, they'd make a move. One exception:Specific R&R #querytip

In your query, don't "explain and interpret" your novel for me. Just give me hook, stakes, protagonists, length. #querytip #agentlife

Don't take rejections personally. Even if I LOVED 100 queries per week, I could not take on 100 projects a week.Because logistics. #querytip

A query should be succinct. If it looks visually exhausting, I'm already in a NO mood.And don't be "too clever." Get to the point. #querytip
