Query 10: NA Sci-Fi. Not my thing & doesn’t really fit in the New Adult category. Pass. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 9: Adult Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Not sure how it’s both. The query makes no sense. Pass. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 8: YA – no genre listed. Too similar to Supernatural’s premise. I’ll leave the demon hunting to the Winchesters. Pass. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 7: YA Fantasy. A few interesting details, but I’m unsure. I’ll re-read the query again later & decide then. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 6: YA Fantasy. Sounds like any other epic fantasy. Too general. Pass. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 5: YA Magical Realism. Sounds more paranormal than magic realism. Pass. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 4: YA Contemporary. Nothing wrong with the query, the content just doesn’t interest me. Pass. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 3: Commercial Fiction. Query is too much about themes, not enough about plot. Pass. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 2: MG Adventure. Query isn’t clear. Too many subplots, not sure what the focus is. Pass. #inboxinsights

Maria Vicente @msmariavicente · 12 Sep 2014

Query 1: YA Fantasy. Too cliché. Normal girl discovers she has powers. Needs to save the world. Pass. #inboxinsights

For #inboxinsights this week, I’m going to do #10queriesIn10tweets. The first 10 unread emails in my query inbox… starting now.
