Rejection doesn't mean you're a bad writer. It means that you owe it to yourself to make your writing better and to keep trying. #CLAqueries

If you’re querying a RomCom, your query should probably have some humor in it. #querytip #CLAQueries

My biggest pet peeve is when you take your first line to describe the sun. I see the sun everyday. Who's your main character?! #CLAQueries

A lot of tough query decisions today. There were so many I was back and forth with, but none piqued my interest quite enough. 😞 #CLAQueries

It stinks for agents too when we get intrigued by certain queries, but just aren't sure we're the best to represent it. #CLAQueries

Remember that when querying, you should focus on ONE book. Don't try to query an entire series, as it will be difficult to sell! #CLAQueries

Remember to pick your comp titles carefully. Popular, but not overly popular, and published within a year or two. #CLAQueries

Please don't call your manuscript "literary" fiction. It's such a broad term and puts high expectations on your writing. #CLAQueries

When looking for comp titles, try to find two within the last year that have sold well but aren't outrageously popular. #CLAQueries

Also, another reminder to please not use classic big name comp titles. GOT, LOTR, NARNIA, HP, and many others should be avoided. #CLAQueries

When querying, remember to know your competition and be able to tell us why yours is different. Why should we read your MS? #CLAQueries

A very smart idea when querying is to personalize, and do it with something not ordinary! "I saw you love horses and bad@$$!" πŸ‘πŸ»#CLAQueries

Word of advice, if you have a manuscript with vampires, werewolves, or princesses, you may want to shelve it for a few years. #CLAQueries
