Gemma Cooper @gemma_cooper“Thirty-eight year old literary agent Gemma wants to get to her meetings on time, but the train she is on is running late. If she’s late, she will miss out on cake and a favourite editor which will put her in a mood all day. Girl on a Train meets Great British Bake Off” (5/?)
this is the best example of a story description i have ever seen #querytip obvi lolol
Linda Camacho @LindaRandomGallt and Zacker Literary Agency is closed to queries until the new year. Happy Holidays from the crew! @AgentZacker, @erin_michelle_C, @beth_phelan, @EllenGreenberg, & Nancy Gallt
Marloe Press @MarloePress@sharpegirl @byobrooks There are people at this press who have experienced *real* go-to-the-police harassment. Trust us -- a letter is not that. Or maybe you think it is -- in which case, go to the police. Presumably you know who sent it...
a #querytip for you: why is this press still out here trying to dictate what counts and doesn't count as harassment? agents (many of them women) have also rec'd this sort of mail at home and felt unsafe, and now get to watch their fears dismissed as not "real".
Writers, please remember that not all #querytip / #subtip advice is necessarily *good* advice, even from pub professionals. Agents & editors have very different rules / expectations, & sometimes ridiculous hoops—and that’s all frustrating, I know. :\
