Maria Vicente @msmariavicenteYou can even take a look at my representation wish list, just to see if you should be getting your query letter ready to send my way in January! mariavicente.com/representation/
Kurestin Armada @kurestinarmadaI've had multiple people lately go "well you never replied to say you'd respond by the date I gave!" And that's just not how things work? 🤔
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteWe're not super picky. It's just that the recipient needs to be able to find your manuscript after saving the document. #querytip
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteThe document name shouldn't be an agent's name, or an agency's name, or "first chapter of my book." #querytip
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteFriendly reminder: when you attach your manuscript (or a partial) to an email, that file name should be the title of your book. #querytip

Kate Brauning @KateBrauningHarry knows right away Voldemort is his parents' murderer. It's personal for him long before he knows what a problem Voldemort is.
Yes! This is often missing in queries—the emotional motivation. The world is ending? COOL. What's happening at the personal level? #querytip

Sara Megibow @SaraMegibowEditing? Make sure your first 30 pages have internal conflict AND external conflict (common mistake in contemporary romance & YA). #pubtip
