It's great to have ambition and show that in your query, but there is a fine line between ambition and pompous. Be careful! #CLAQueries

Don't take two HUGE titles as comp titles and put them in your query. It's not impressive, it just shows you didn't research. #CLAQueries

Don't claim your novel is a best-seller or that you know amazing writing because you're a journalist. You will seem pompous. #CLAQueries
