#amquerying #querytip I really can’t sell a debut novel longer than 120k, even in adult SFF

#querytip Guys, agents don't talk about word count limits on projects to be assholes. They want you to produce work you can sell, and word count is part of that

#querytip If you don’t bother to follow my guidelines, I won’t bother requesting materials. Respect agents’ guidelines if you want us to invest in you

#querytip All because you don't see people asking for your book on MSWL doesn't mean agents aren't interested in your type of book. MSWL reflects what people *don't* currently have in their inboxes but would like to see!

Also random #querytip please keep in mind most younger agents were babies in the late 80s/early 90s—keep in mind when picking movies for comp titles!
