@laurenspieller How should writers approach querying a new ms if an earlier ms is still out on full request?

First, make sure youโ€™re truly ready to query. Second, follow up w agents who have your first manuscript (assuming you are still interested in working with them), and let them know you are querying something new. Also, query additional agents. #askagent

@laurenspieller I've had an agent tell me the minimum acceptable word count for YA fantasy is 90k. Is that true? And does that apply to contemporary fantasy or can that be shorter? #askagent

Nope, wrong. First, there is no โ€œruleโ€ about word count. Second, the first YA Fantasy I sold came to me at ~55k. Your word count is determined by the scope of your story and your world. #askagent

KC Harper @kcharper613

@laurenspieller What if what your character wants changes through the story or they get what they want halfway through so the focus changes? Is that problematic?

A character changing is the definition of a story, so for the purpose of the query, just include their initial WANT! But if there's a sudden, inexplicable about-face, then you need to really look at your character arc and make sure it makes sense. #askagent
