The moral: don't try to trick your way to the top of an agent's query queue. That's just bad form. #QueryTip

#QueryTip if you're a #Reylo shipper I probably don't want to rep your romance. Sorry but trust me it's for the best. Our love can never be.

#QueryTip: Avoid passive prose at ALL COSTS. Particularly in the case of cliches, like: "truths are discovered" or "enemies must ally" etc.

#QueryTip if you happen to share a name with someone unfortunate whom I may google, maybe specify in your query they're not you. Just sayin.

I sympathize (more than you know) with the suckage of rejection. I get that it's awkward to sell yourself. But you've gotta do it. #QueryTip

The most important thing is to pitch your story well. Starting with why you're desperate to publish isn't going to help. Promise. #QueryTip

There's a happy middle ground between "hey I'm a human being" and inappropriate familiarity. Unsure? Err toward professionalism. #QueryTip

Please only query me with one project at a time, unless they're related. Even then, maybe wait until I ask for more. #QueryTip #ClusterQuery

#QueryTip: Agents often run hundreds of unread emails behind on a given day. This isn't your fault. Don't torture yourself. Query multiples.

It's not that there aren't great books with high word counts. Especially classics. But I'm guessing you can edit down. #QueryTip #QueryParty

I'm going to be brutally honest; I get VERY antsy if a manuscript is over 120,000 words. It's just so hard to justify. #QueryTip #QueryParty

Start with the hook. The hook is the thing that makes your story go from status quo to "whoa!" or "oh, hell no!" #PitchTips #QueryTip
