Agent with Red Sofa Literary, author of spooky stuff, moonlights in antiques & tech. Closed to queries until June 1.
Erica Davis Secor @thedavisgirl@staceyigraham is there such a thing as a fiction proposal (before ms is complete)?
Red Sofa Literary sends out proposals for both fiction and nonfiction with every book (after the fiction is finished, of course). #askagent
Erik ☃️ Hane @erikhane@LindaWonder @staceyigraham #askagent I don't need much suspense in the query. I think lay it out (but do it quickly, not too much summary!)
I don't want a cliffhanger. I want to see that you know how to wrap it up! :) #askagent
Erica Davis Secor @thedavisgirl@staceyigraham @erikhane #askagent What gut reaction would your dream project give you?
All of my clients are my dream projects, so it's a mixture of giddiness and queasiness. Pass the Tums. #askagent
Saadia Faruqi @SaadiaFaruqi@staceyigraham @erikhane #askagent what should one do if one writes both kid lit and adult fiction? One agent or two?
Depends. See what your chosen agent reps first, you may luck out with both. Otherwise, it's up to you. #askagent
Called Tim by Some @timfrankovichWhat are the current trends in YA fantasy? #askagent @erikhanes @staceyigraham
Unfortunately, I don't represent either YA or fantasy, so don't want to set off any warning bells. #askagent
Erica Davis Secor @thedavisgirl@staceyigraham @erikhane how did you celebrate your first sale (either yours or a client's)? #askagent
Personal #1 sale: Expensive handbag.
My first sale as an agent: Dinner & a new book. Occupational hazard #askagent
Stacey Graham @staceyigraham.@erikhane If a writer has made a tiny mistake in their query, will that count against them? #askagent
No! Don't fret the small stuff but have a friend look over your query first to make sure the big stuff is covered well. #askagent
