10 Tips

When #amquerying use a font that almost every computer can read, like TNR or Verdana. I often read on my phone and if fancy fonts come through they can be difficult to read. #querytip

When #amquerying fiction, you don’t need to talk about marketing, platform, etc. Describe the characters and plot, add a short bio, and you’re done. #querytip

Leave the word "learns" out of your #query unless it moves a mystery forward. Emotional development is not a plot. #querytip

Don't spend time telling me that your book has no vampires. I care about what's there, not what isn't. #querytip
