Alexandra Johnson @allie_l_johnson

Any advice on querying a “quiet” (as in, internal) YA MS? #askJNA
Replying to @allie_l_johnson

If the voice knocks me out, then you always have a shot. But to echo @byobrooks -- make sure there's a plot. Even if I love the voice, and not the plot, we can try shaping it together before we send it out to editors. #askJNA

Teen romance is it outdated? #askJNA
Replying to @Nassiri27021983

No way! Phew! Although I do like an extra plot layer or subplot to complement the romance. Not always necessary though. #askJNA

Do you want to know in the query if we’ve worked on the ms with a freelance editor? If so, worth naming him or her? @JanklowNesbit #AskJNA #askagent
Replying to @gcskiracer

Yes! Ask your freelance editor if they have any recommendations for agents -- we all run in the same circles, so they might have some good ideas. (One of my clients was actually a freelance editor referral.) #askJNA

What are you not seeing enough of in #kidlit? (And what are you seeing too much of?)
#askJNA
Replying to @meowdemeow

I am also seeing far too many rhyming picture book texts. If you are going to rhyme, read @BergerBooks for inspo and properly fantastic rhyme!! #askJNA

Harrison Ley @harrison_ley

I’ve been working with a big-deal agent for three months, but he still hasn’t signed me. Now he wants to pitch my book. What should I do? #AskJNA
Replying to @harrison_ley

I recommend trying to have a frank conversation with the agent about becoming official. If they think the book is ready to pitch, then it's in both your interests to have something on paper. #askJNA

Amanda Salisbury @shyjot

Can pages ever balance an awkward query letter? Or do you consider them parts of the same wheelhouse? #askJNA
Replying to @shyjot

Pages can overcome a multitude of query sins, but I often feel less invested by the time I read pages if the query is a clunker. #askJNA
