ECD is querying @ecoyledivers

@annmrose Hi Ann, thanks for your time. At what time should we give up on a query? Asking in cases where there are not clear guidelines on the agent's or agency site. For example, no response in 3 months = no.
Replying to @ecoyledivers

These days 3 months feels like a finger snap when considering queries (which I know it doesn’t on the author side) so I would amp that up to at least 6 months and even then it might not be dead to an agent so following up if you get an offer isn’t a bad idea

Cas Fick @CM_Fick

@annmrose How long is an R&R good for? Is there a statute of limitations on them, or does this vary depending on agent?

Thank you for your time!
Replying to @CM_Fick

That’s tricky. I think it’s as long as it needs to be but not too long that the agent forgets completely about the project. If I were to put a number on it 3-6 months I think is the sweet spot

L.C. Perry 💚💜💖💪🏾 @LPanimefreak5

@annmrose From your perspective, do you think tradpub is finally moving toward another attempt at making NA a thing? Or is there still a long ways to go?
Replying to @LPanimefreak5

So w/ NA it comes down to the publishers’ customer—the bookstore—so when the bookstore creates a space for NA I think that’s when it’ll become a thing, but until then it’s difficult to sell them a book they don’t have a space carved out for. This is like a chicken/egg scenario

Chris Corvus, a bird of words. @inkmaderaven

@annmrose If a story is good but has technical issues how likely is it to get picked up since technical issues can be fixed in edits?
Replying to @inkmaderaven

The answer to this will vary. Is it possible for a story with technical issues to get picked up? Yes. But it depends on the agent and how much bandwidth they have to work on the MS and how strongly they feel about the concept of the story

Nagashree is querying @WritersDragons

@annmrose Are books set in college or post-college vacation considered adult, NA or YA? 🙈
Replying to @WritersDragons

Post college I don’t think can be considered YA (and I’m sure someone will disagree with this) in college can be depending on when (what year in college) and the circumstances of the plot and character arc

Jenn Nixon @jennnixon

@annmrose Happy Friday! I'm curious, is now a good time to query? So many authors are selfpubbing now, I'm wondering if Agents are actively looking for authors.
Replying to @jennnixon

There is no right or wrong way to publication it’s all about personal preference.
If an agent is open to queries I think that shows they are open to taking on more writers.
