Finally, as before, I have a "bonus pitch" section in QM. USE IT! If you don't put clear pitches for additional manuscripts, I *will* reject your query. I'm looking to work with prolific, well-rounded authors. Nothing personal, just my preference to keep our options open. #mswl

This short #mswl is NOT an exhaustive list. Please visit my QM page for more details about what I like (and don't like). I created several custom genres to help me organize & read-through my submissions. Do your best to use them appropriately (don't sweat it if you're not sure).

- Mysteries and thrillers that are mysterious and/or thrilling from the first chapter. You can have set-up, but the tone should clearly convey what genre I'm reading.
- Adventures like Pax and Wolf Called Wander
- Clean, tight writing styles. I'm a minimalist by nature.

SURPRISE! I'm open to queries. :-)

All the info on what I'm accepting can be found on my QueryManager page: querymanager.com/query/jestrudel

I don't want queriers to have to wait 5 mths for a response, so this time I will stay open for only about two weeks, lest my inbox overfloweth.

My client list is filling up, so I will be even more selective this time. My #mswl includes:
- high concept board, picture, and chapter books (new concept easily understood in just a few words)
- YA contemporary like Jenny Han and John Green (commercial but bends a bit literary).

I've updated my QM page. I'm still closed to queries, but I've included details on what I'll be looking for so that you can prepare in advance (if you're the preparing type). #querystatus #mswl QueryManager.com/jestrudel
