It’s always cool to make up special terms when you’re world building for SFF stories, but if you never bother to explain what those terms mean by context, or even just telling, then it’s just nonsense and a hard pass for me. #querytip #pubtip

Writers ask if it’s worth hiring a freelance editor to help. My philosophy is that it’s not a bad idea if you do your research. There are many random people who call themselves editors and writing coaches, but don’t actually have an editorial work history or track record. #pubtip

When an agent offers rep, it's probably not wise to tell them you don't like doing revisions. Even if you don't want to revise and edit for the agent, 99.9% you'll have to do them for an editor if your book sells. There's always room for improvement. #pubtip

Publishing tip: If you’ve trolled an author online, it’s probably best not to query that author’s agent for representation. If you’ve been nasty to any of my clients due to ignorance or just for the pure sake of being nasty, I’m never going to rep you. #pubtip
