Moe Ferrara Is In Need Of Coffee
Tess Sharpe @sharpegirlIf you get an offer, alert EVERYONE. I mean it. Everyone who has your query, even if they haven't gotten back to you or requested a full. You want as many people offering and giving you different takes on your career paths as you can. The offer week is illuminating.
I cannot express how important this is. No, you won’t annoy agents by alerting us you have an offer. Even if we haven’t gotten to your query. Or have had requested material for a bit. Please PLEASE tell us. #querytip
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
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
🍉 Cindy Baldwin 🍉 @beingcindyOne more bit of advice this morning, #PitchWars. A lot of hopefuls want to know what phrases like "didn't connect" mean. I totally get it.
THIS. There's a lot I read that I like but pass on. Doesn't mean it's a bad book! It just means I didn't have INSTALOVEMUSTBEMINE. #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

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
