Going through queries, and I'm quickly reminded of an old standard: if I can play it as a D&D campaign, I don't want to rep it. #pubtip

#PubTip - I'm not a cat person. I feel the need to say this after multiple cat-centric queries in the inbox. #notforme

Writers, please. Even if your novel is presented as "found footage", don't query it as so. Be a professional! #pubtip

Maybe the worst way to start a #query: "I'm working on a novel that is almost complete..." No. Finish it. THEN query. #pubtip

"Here are the first three pages of my book" does not a #query make. Take a little time and tell me something interesting! #pubtip

Time for another #pubtip! Always doublecheck any information about an agent's interests with a primary source. Don't trust 3rd party sites.
