Author friends, I know it's hard to tell sometimes, but plz make sure that the formatting for your query is legible. #amwriting #querytip
If you are querying a series or possible series, please query the first book. #querytip #amwriting
I've received a few queries recently that were addressed to more than 1 agent. Please be sure to email agents separately #querytip
Please note we do NOT open attachments. Also, please remember to address your query to one of our agents. Plz no "Dear Agent" #querytip
We're receiving a lot of queries that do not follow submission guidelines. Plz b sure to check our website for guidelines. #querytip

Yup. #querytip twitter.com/ECarrieHowland…
It's very dangerous to compare your work to well-known books, and I'd suggest avoiding comparisons. #querytip #pubtip
#querytip #amquerying Please make sure you have the right agency/agent.
Please send sample pages for the manuscript you are querying. #querytip #amquerying #pubtip
Would anyone be interested in a weekly first page critique? I'll be hosting it on my blog. Please let me know #amwriting #pubtip #querytip
#querytip It's always a good idea to research/read books in the genre that you write.
#querytip for me, an automatic decline would be a query with just a link to website or Amazon.
#querytip most agencies have a "no attachment" policy. It's always best to check before hitting send.
#querytip Please remember to include your name and contact information! I will often get queries from authors with no name.
Plz research the agents you're going to query. Make sure they represent your genre. You'll be less likely of insta-rejection. #querytip
#querytip if you query @BookerAlbertLit, please be sure to specify which agent in subject line. I think many agents request the same.
#querytip please make sure you are addressing the correct agent when you query. (Usually auto-decline)
#querytip you don't really need to include any excerpts from your story in your query.
When you query, please make sure your sample pages are from the beginning. #querytip
If you have more than one manuscript, it would be best to query only ONE work at a time. #querytip
