I've read SO many manuscripts opening with the main character waking up and they all feel the same. PLEASE, querying authors, don't begin on a wake-up scene! Find somewhere unique to start your novel! #querytip

I see so many “let me introduce myself” queries with NO description about the book. The biggest thing an agent needs in a query is the description of the BOOK

It's dated January 2016. How was that only January 2016?? It feels like thirty years ago! pic.twitter.com/YAQWHLf10m
