I've read plenty of bad queries and still requested. I was a bad test taker in college. I get it.

First chapter... hard to define. #askPSLA

Nope. Find an agent who wants to represent your career, and maybe is a fan of both.

Though just query one at a time. #AskPSLA

@ericsmithrocks Why do so many agents dislike prologues? #askPSLA

I think they are fine, as long as they don't wipe away the stakes, which they often do.

IE: "Soon my world would" NO. No spoilers. #askPSLA
