Jennifer Looft @Jenniferlooft#askPSLA in your experience, has YA dystopian run its course, or are agents/publishers still buying?
I'll do anything to avoid using the word dystopian in a pitch now. #askPSLA
Nikki @ThevoiceofIs#askPSLA How important is a social media following important for emerging authors, even in querying?
for fiction? not really important at all, so focus more on building a community and support system #askPSLA
Sophie Pinkoski @sophiemlpink@PSLiterary how big of a deal is manuscript word count? Do you toss a submission if wordcount is too large?#askPSLA
short word count is worse than long, IMO! Over 200k has to sound VERY good to be worth it tho #askPSLA
Amy Warren @Amy_R_WarrenWill be at a conf with @PSLiterary agent. Is it ok to pitch an unfinished work just to help learn the process? 1st conference ever. #askPSLA
Yes, just mention that from that start! pitches are YOUR time #askPSLA
Tesse Struve @StruveTesseWhen you find an MS you like do you reach out right away? Do you scan your inbox for something interesting? #askpsla
Kristi McManus @unrealismbooksDo agents always respond after reviewing full ms requests? Or is it like with queries: respond if interested? #askPSLA
Tesse Struve @StruveTesseIs it frowned upon to have too many manuscripts to submit in different genres? #askpsla
Alicia Byers @AByersAuthor@kurestinarmada So if I can walk and talk, but my manuscript is 60k instead of 75k, is that still a deal breaker?
Kristi McManus @unrealismbooksHow long should an author wait before following up after receiving a full ms request from an agent? #askPSLA
Alicia Byers @AByersAuthorHow important is it that an author can "walk and talk?" Will that help with manuscripts that are slightly shorter than preferred? #askPSLA
Elizabeth Tyree @writerbaby13#askPSLA I write and my mother draws illustrations for the novels. How do you feel about someone bringing their own artist to the table?
Bree Tracey @bptracey@MsMariaVicente Do you ever sign self published authors, and what's the biggest mistake you see new authors make? #askPSLA
Samantha Eaton All The Sugarplums ❄️ @Samantha_Eaton3What's the worst thing you've ever seen in a query? The best? #askPSLA
Rachel Manwill @rachelmanwill@MsMariaVicente How common are remote internships? Would love that, but hard to find. #askpsla
