Q10: YA with an interesting twist on mythology. This is a good letter. It has two main characters and does a great job of setting up the goals of one of them. Good world building. Would love a bit more on the other mc, but still intrigued. Request! #tenqueries
Q8: Adult historical fiction. This has an interesting premise, but it feels like lots of bad things happen to the characters over and over again. What do they hope for? How will they overcome these obstacles? I want active protagonists. Pass. #tenqueries
OK, that's my #tenqueries. One request, nine passes.
I'm now getting off Twitter until January. My favorite Christmas Present to myself.
I have now responded to all queries through 8/31, not including partial/full requests. I hope to get through 9/15 before Thanksgiving.
Q10: MG sports mystery. Opens with the main character missing the free shot that would have won her team the championship. This is the MG sports mystery equivalent of opening a mystery novel with a dead woman and two detectives standing over the body. #tenqueries
Q8: Thriller, set inside a prison. Skeptical about originality - hope it doesn't become one guard who teams up with a badass con who is actually a good guy to take out the gang of inmates hell-bent on escaping and going on a murder spree - but will request and find out#tenqueries
Q7: Appealing to my Patriots fandom is always nice - a good way to show you've done some research and are querying me for a reason.
But in doing that research, you should also have learned that I'm beyond clueless when it comes to Picture Books. Pass.#tenqueries
