Never apologize in your query letter. We know you're nervous about putting your words out there. (Though, promise, we agents aren't that scary.. mostly..) Starting out with an apology it doesn't inspire confidence. Be a badass when you hit send! #querytip #pubtip #amquerying

It's a new year and all that but I can guarantee the one thing that I will never be looking for in my inbox: vampires. #querytip #pubtip #antiMSWL #JustCallMeBuffy

I cannot say this enough: know your age groups. Your novel is either MG or YA or NA. It’s not a combination of two or three of these age groups. #querytip #pubtip

Happy Last Day of #NaNoWriMo!

And remember, December 1 is not the day to query agents with your recently finished manuscript. Editing is important. #querytip #pubtip

Gentle reminder: I am not the agent for vampire books. Really, I'm not. I promise you I'm not. #antiMSWL #querytip

Guys -- I'm looking for full-length works at this time. No stand-alone novellas, please! #querytip #pubtip #AmAgenting

Guys. My personal work address is not where to send your queries. Queries go to QueryMe.online/1005 -- nowhere else. #querytip #pubtip

Gentle reminder that agents are people too (yes, really). We can't rep everyone so please don't take your frustrations out on us. #querytip

One of the biggest reasons I reject: not knowing your audience! If it's a MG story, it better be written for the MG audience. #querytip

I tried scrolling through #kidpit but man, a lot of those pitches over images are hard to read. Don't make it hard on agents guys. #querytip

Authors, I really don't care what your page count is—I care about your word count. Page counts can change with fonts. Words don't. #querytip

See, guys? I'm not the only one talking word counts and knowing your market. One or two exceptions are not the rule. #querytip #pubtip

The biggest reason I turn down MG queries/subs is voice & subject matter. Remember the age group you're writing for! #pubtip #querytip

A word to the wise: things you say on the internet stay on the internet. Agents may look at your online behavior when offering. #querytip

Hey guys — if an agent is open to queries, don’t send a “pre-query” asking if we are open to queries. Just send it! #querytip #pubtip

Authors, if you know your wordcount is high for the genre... edit before querying! Don't tell us it could be split if needed. #querytip
