Query Update: Kindly requesting those who want to query me to use Query Manager (link in pinned tweet). We are still having server issues & it's now taking 2 minutes to open a single query letter (this does not include reading time). 😭

#QueryTip: New adult isn't a trade publishing category, and imprints need books categorized as either adult or YA when submitted. If you're querying an agent, please be aware of this, and that it's more work if we have to navigate the revisions to re-categorize a book pre-sub!

I received one query tonight that 1, was over 100K words, 2, was previously published, and 3, it was sent to myself and one of my Westwood colleagues simultaneously.
Please, just read the submission guidelines. Do a little research. That's all I ask.

#pubtip Nobody knows what works and what doesn't when it comes to marketing. A 50 city book tour could go nowhere, and a random video of a toddler throwing a water balloon at your book could go viral and make you a bestseller. So don't be afraid to get creative and try anything

#QueryTip: Not everyone knows, so I thought I’d jump on to mention, a query and synopsis are not the same thing. The query is like the back cover copy, it’s a tool to hook the reader into wanting to read the pages…

PS, please avoid comping to Stephen King and Dan Brown and James Patterson, just in general. There are so many reasons, and so many other comps out there. #QueryTip

Writers, when you send submissions, don't lock in a format. Just a plain old Word or docx format is perfect. No pdfs or other locked formats. (And it doesn't hurt to look at agents' websites to see what they prefer.)#pubtip

Hey guys I know you want an offer of publication, but if something sets off alarm bells, don't jump in anyway. A publisher will not ask you for money. That's a huge red flag. #pubtip #querytip #asktheeditor

#QueryTip: It’s a good idea to have someone who knows nothing about your book read your query before you send it out. They don’t even have to be an writer. The point is to see if anything about it is confusing because if it is for them it will be to us too. #amquerying #amwriting
