#querytip Don't send queries "written" by your protagonist. If you want to be treated as a professional, treat your query professionally.
#querytip Don't begin your query with a long bio, particularly if it has nothing to do with what you're querying on. It's all about the book

#querytip Don't send queries asking the agent to respond with reasons why the author should hire the agent to represent them.
