Something I never thought I would have to say—a query is not an application for a dating site. 🙃

#QueryTip - Do not write your query letter in first person. This is especially awkward when it's a thriller and people have been kidnapped in the book. 🙃

Reminder that all queries sent unsolicited to my inbox (meaning my work email) will NOT be considered.
This isn’t to be mean. This is to keep it fair for all authors. #QueryTip #WritingCommunity

Hard truth (a short 🧵): I have to reject really amazing sounding books everyday. Think about it this way, if you were handed 100+ books a week (every week) could you realistically read them all? … #QueryTip #WritingCommunity

A friendly request: I do not mind when people requery me with the same project after they’ve made changes but I do kindly ask that you make a note of the changes you made in the query letter.
Thank you!

Back on the elliptical—or in other words, back to my BS—and thought a good distraction could be a thread about the R word (rejection) anyone up for it? #QueryTip #WritingCommunity #AmQuerying

The number of queries I’ve seen lately with 200k & 300k words has been a little concerning so I thought I’d try to take a moment to chat about high word counts… a 🧵

#QueryTip — If you tell an agent one of their client’s referred you to them, you can pretty much guarantee we are going to ask that client. 😉❤️

QUERY UPDATE: As of this morning I have NO access to submissions sent through the Prospect website. My Query Manager is open and you are welcome to submit there. Please note if it is a repeat from the Prospect Site. I'm sorry for any inconvenience. #QueryTip #WritingCommunity

Query Update: Kindly requesting those who want to query me to use Query Manager (link in pinned tweet). We are still having server issues & it's now taking 2 minutes to open a single query letter (this does not include reading time). 😭

#QueryTip: Not everyone knows, so I thought I’d jump on to mention, a query and synopsis are not the same thing. The query is like the back cover copy, it’s a tool to hook the reader into wanting to read the pages…

#QueryTip: It’s a good idea to have someone who knows nothing about your book read your query before you send it out. They don’t even have to be an writer. The point is to see if anything about it is confusing because if it is for them it will be to us too. #amquerying #amwriting

#QueryTip: Authors, do not self reject!
What do I mean by this?
In my inbox lately I can feel how frustrated authors are right now. And I get it. Querying is tough! But let's talk about some not so great trends I've seen recently in my inbox.

Query Update: I have gone through all the queries that were able to make it to me from the Prospect Site through June. Lots of tough choices were made.
Remember a no now, it's a no forever. So if you heavily revise or have a new MS I'm happy to review.

Note to authors using Word: Resolving a comment does not delete it. I get a number of submissions with resolved comments still in the comment section. Make sure you go through and actually delete them before you send. #QueryTip #AmQuerying

Today has been a tough day, and I've had to make some really hard decisions in my inbox and let go of some really amazing projects. Please know, that a no from me is never a no from future projects. Please consider me again. Sometimes timing just isn't on our side. #querytip
