#askPSLA Is using a comp title of an author you rep in the query a turn-off?

Replying to @MeAngelaD

Nope, but it should definitely be accurate then! Also, if your book is TOO close I might reject bc of it #askPSLA

What really makes a query letter stand out? #askPSLA

Replying to @LauraTheRose

it depends! But usually, clear concise description of book, focus on character/stakes/conflict, something new #askPSLA

Yes, but it often changes before submission/publication #askPSLA
