@bookendslit #AskAgent How often do you update your MSWL and other sites such as Agent Query and Query Tracker?

Replying to @boop1967

Not as Often as we'd like. Once our wishlists go out there, they tend to go to a bunch of places, and it can be hard to keep track. Twitter, and our website is best for up-to-date information. (though QT updates with our preferences on QM so that should be up to date)

@bookendslit Thanks for doing this #AskAgent!

If a picture book is dependent on the scene and has <200 words, is there a best way to format the MS (e.g., necessary art notes bracketed, text in line vs. new line break per new scene, potential page numbers indicated etc.)?

Replying to @JB_Currie

Interesting question. Everyone tends to do this a bit differently. You can certainly work it as each line being a new scene, or as each line break being a new spread w/ page numbers included. I would bracket the art notes for ease of reading.
