Q9: Author is querying me with the seventh in a series of thrillers. The first six have all been self-pubbed - but it's OK because he can get the rights back at any time. There's very little I can do with book 7 of a series when 1-6 are already out. #tenqueries
Q7A: NF proposal that actually sounds pretty interesting...but did a quick Google search on the author and found virtually no online presence or platform. Platform is a huge part of selling nonfiction, and it's sorely lacking here. Pass. #tenqueries
Q3: MG horror. Kid moves in next to a creepy cemetery bc mom got a job as the caretaker. Graveyard is haunted, kid is going to have to save the day. I like this premise - which is why I've already read most of the books that already have this plotline Pass. #tenqueries
OK, that's my #tenqueries. One request, nine passes.
I'm now getting off Twitter until January. My favorite Christmas Present to myself.
I have now responded to all queries through 8/31, not including partial/full requests. I hope to get through 9/15 before Thanksgiving.
Q10: MG sports mystery. Opens with the main character missing the free shot that would have won her team the championship. This is the MG sports mystery equivalent of opening a mystery novel with a dead woman and two detectives standing over the body. #tenqueries
Q8: Thriller, set inside a prison. Skeptical about originality - hope it doesn't become one guard who teams up with a badass con who is actually a good guy to take out the gang of inmates hell-bent on escaping and going on a murder spree - but will request and find out#tenqueries
Q7: Appealing to my Patriots fandom is always nice - a good way to show you've done some research and are querying me for a reason.
But in doing that research, you should also have learned that I'm beyond clueless when it comes to Picture Books. Pass.#tenqueries
