Adana K. Washington @adanawashingtonIs it prudent for an author to plan part of their career around a series? #AskFuse
Writer's Flow @writersflow.@FuseLiterary how important is having a website/blog/platform prior to getting representation? Should links be shared in a query? #askFuse
🆆🆁🅴🅺🅴🅷🅰🆅🅾🅲 @wrekehavoc#askfuse How long must you wait to requery an agent if you have completely retooled your book? 5 years? 10 years? Never? :-)
Keith Frawley @happyidiots#AskFuse Thanks for having us! How are you finding the current market place in picture books?
Dena Moes @DenaMoesWriter@FuseLiterary Thanks #AskFuse. And will the writer always hear feedback from an agent who asks to see pages/full ms?
Dena Moes @DenaMoesWriter@FuseLiterary Hi #AskFuse! If a #LiteraryAgent asks to read full manuscript, how much time should the writer expect that to take?
Liz Julia @LizJuliaWrites@FuseLiterary How much weight do you put on the synopsis when you're considering a submission? #AskFuse
.@LizKellyWrites It's important. It isn't > the ms, but it's often necessary to show the ms has proper structure. #AskFuse
maria katherine maria @kmariawrites@FuseLiterary #AskFuse is it better for a comp to be current, recognizable, or be an on-the-nose comparison?
.@KatherineFrazer Yes. Ideally all of those things, or the comp isn't likely to work in your favor. #AskFuse
Heidi Renee Mason @heidireneemason@FuseLiterary #AskFuse What is the first thing that grabs you in a query and makes you want more?
Jade Hemming 🌌 @jadewritesbooks@FuseLiterary #AskFuse at what stage are potential serials discussed? With publisher or agent?
Kristy Leigh @kristyleigh3211@FuseLiterary Thank you. So better to leave them out then try to make one fit that is really kind of stretching it?? #AskFuse
April M. Wall @aprilmwall@FuseLiterary If your 1st book is more humorous but next book is more serious even if in same genre (MG), is it harder to sell? #AskFuse
Kristy Leigh @kristyleigh3211@FuseLiterary Hello! Do you like to see comps in picture book queries? Thank you! #AskFuse 😊
S.H. Marr @SH_Marr_Writes@FuseLiterary Do any of your YA agents have thoughts on aromantic characters in YA? #AskFuse
C.L. Polk @clpolk#AskFuse if you had a full with an agent and you drastically revised your MS, do you write to ask to send the revision before sending?
Brian C. Baer @BrianCBaer@FuseLiterary #AskFuse Do you prefer strong genre elements, or do you sign based on the strength of the writing in general?
