Authors, please do not have someone (a lawyer, manager, etc) submit your query on your behalf. I promise I will read it even if you've never written or been published before. I'm honestly less inclined to read it if you're not sending it yourself. #querytip

If I request your manuscript, please send it in the same thread as your query. You don't need to change the subject line either. I promise I'll see it. #querytip

Please note that a synopsis is not a replacement for a query letter. You want to make sure that your query letter can still tell me what your manuscript is about. #querytip

A great way to ensure I’ll never look at your query is if you send me a 7 day countdown to when you’ll be sending it. #querytip

Please don't start your query letter with "Dear Agent". It looks like you did 0 research on what I'm looking for. #querytip
