#Protip: Maybe don't try to tear down the agent you're querying in an attempt to make yourself more appealing. O.O #pubtip

Gotta love the huge spike in submissions this week. This is your friendly reminder that I am not closing to subs forever. #pubtip

There are an *awful* lot of bloody suns/skies/horizons in fantasy manuscripts. #ClicheAlert #pubtip

EPIC isn't always the best way to go in SFF. Sometimes it's the quieter stories that can have the most impact. (2/2) #pubtip

I think deciding on the scope of your story is something really important to consider when starting a project. (1/2) #pubtip

Websites & inanimate objects cannot refer a writer to me or my agency. Referred submissions are ones by colleagues and clients. #pubtip

Also, please don't do yourself a disservice & rush getting your submission in that isn't there yet. I'll be open again in the Fall. #pubtip

If you say a project is requested, please remind me from where. #pubtip

Synopsis does not equal chapter summary. #pubtip

About once every three days, I get a query that talks about the books/authors I "publish". -_- #notapublisher #doyourreseach #pubtip

I don't think you guys quite understand how lovely a well-crafted, rule-following query looks to me. #pubtip (2/2)

A bunch of links is not a query letter. I won't click on them even if you are sending them "exclusively". Follow the rules, please. #pubtip
