When your pitch is rejected, at a conference you have the opportunity to find out. Don't sulk over the NO, ask why. Keep learning. #querytip

If you pitch me in person, don't recite your pitch like a poem, or read it. If you just read it, you could have just emailed me. #querytip

Share your query with non-writers. If they're not impressed, it needs work. Remember: they are the largest segment of book buyers #querytip.

I deeply dislike it when writers use the word "forward" when they mean "foreword." And YES, I will reject a query just for that. #querytip

The longer I am in this business, the more I believe a writer needs to spend almost as much time on the query as on the book. #querytip
