Grace Majka @CGMajka#askfuse If an agent has requested a full ms, how long should I wait before contacting them to see if it is still under consideration?
.@CarolGraceWood1 That's usually stated in their guidelines. If not, give them a few months, depending upon time of year. #AskFuse
Shayna Grissom @ShaynaGrissom#AskFuse If I have several stories in several genres, how do I find one Literary agent? Or do I get multiple?
Sabrina Sol @theromancechica@FuseLiterary If you get requests from multiple agents for your MS via a pitch contest, OK to send it to more than 1 at same time? #AskFuse
Claire A. Belle @clairewriter11Thank you! Also, if I get a good review from a publishing website (e.g. BookLife) on an unpub'd book, should I mention in a query? #AskFuse
Grace Majka @CGMajka#askfuse I've heard that it is fairly common that publishers will want to see the titles of books changed. Do you see that a lot?
.@CarolGraceWood1 Yes. As with editing the manuscript, the title often undergoes revision, to say the least. #AskFuse
Claire A. Belle @clairewriter11I write both YA and adult lit -- should I focus on querying agents who rep both, or is it ok to look for 2 agents? #AskFuse
Jennifer Brookie @JennyBrookie#AskFuse What is your sweet spot for word count for children's picture books and any particular topics/ MC's you've been hoping for in PB's?
☕Kara Cargill 🎄❄ @Coffee_Is_love@FuseLiterary #AskFuse Will there be any other picture book agents there after
PuddleJumpCollective @Puddle_Jumps@FuseLiterary What are you looking for in a PB submission right now? #AskFuse
mildly disturbing @MCHana2#AskFuse If we queried one Fuse agent w/no response, may we query another agent there?
Tina C. @tinapickles#AskFuse How do literary agents keep on top of/indenting/create/respond to "the market" (i.e. What's hot)?It always seems to be changing...
☕Kara Cargill 🎄❄ @Coffee_Is_love@FuseLiterary if one sent a Query in the spring, then how long should we wait until sending another query in?
Steven M. Cross @stevecrosswords#AskFuse I write on mental illness and I have a mental illness. I mention it in my query. Is that the kind of thing an agent wants to hear.
Megan Reyes @MReyesWrites#AskFuse How many clients does a "seasoned" agent have, on average(ish)? Is there a point at which agents feel their list is full?
Steven M. Cross @stevecrosswords#AskFuse Is it hard to sell experimental fiction? Stream of consciousness, rotating viewpoints, different genres mixed in one book etc.
Steven M. Cross @stevecrosswords#AskFuse What do you see as the next big trend in YA fiction?
Nancy Van Leuven @NancyVanLeuvenDoes it catch your eye if somebody has graduated from an MFA program? What bio gems are golden? @FuseLiterary #AskFuse
Raina Xin @xinraina@FuseLiterary Portal fantasy is a hard sell, but got any examples of YA portal fantasy that *are* done well, in the last 10 years? #AskFuse
