Pretty please, let agents know if you have an offer (even if you're withdrawing bc you've found your perfect match). It sucks to start falling for a project only to learn it was recently rep'd. My query system has a spot for that, and I keep messages open. #querytip #amquerying

Noticing a trend in my queries of calling stories "epic" bc they are very long. For me, epic fantasy is a specific subgenre. #querytip

One way to get an automatic pass from me is to trash the genre I love (and also the one you write in). #querytip #pubtip

#querytip I don't need a Table of Contents. Just get to the writing. ;)

When sending a query for a story in a crowded area, it's not a bad idea to include a sentence or two on why yours would stand out. #querytip

For me, never end a query with a choice that isn't one: "...must chose between fighting corrupt evil or losing the one he loves" #querytip

Actually, unless it's a REALLY tough choice, don't end a query with that sort of statement at all. #querytip #myopinion

Get me attached to your main character(s) early. That's how you'll get me to request more. #querytip

So many epic fantasies start with descriptions of the weather or mid-battle. Avoiding these will help you stand out in my slush. #querytip

For me, it's typically a good idea to focus on character in your query rather than setting and general "cool stuff". #querytip

Just an FYI to queriers. I can see your Google+ pictures. Do with that information what you will. #querytip
