Back on the elliptical—or in other words, back to my BS—and thought a good distraction could be a thread about the R word (rejection) anyone up for it? #QueryTip #WritingCommunity #AmQuerying

The number of queries I’ve seen lately with 200k & 300k words has been a little concerning so I thought I’d try to take a moment to chat about high word counts… a 🧵

Something I've seen several times lately: Do NOT query until you have a finished manuscript to send! It's disappointing to request something and then hear it doesn't exist fully. :( #querytrenches #querytip #asktheeditor

If I could give one tip to any writer who's querying or writing for submission right now, it would be START IN THE ACTION. Every scene. I feel like I cannot emphasize this enough. #QueryTip #WritingCommunity

One of the #SpineSquad authors passed on this tool today, which is going to be GREAT for comps research! It provides word count, reading level, synopsis - all kinds of really useful info on loads of books. Thanks, @mayabidaya!! #WritingCommunity #QueryTip

#QueryTip — If you tell an agent one of their client’s referred you to them, you can pretty much guarantee we are going to ask that client. 😉❤️

The #amquerying season has begun. If you're an author looking for an agent, my main #querytip is to ID agents in your genre. Don't waste your time to querying an agent w/o knowing their specialty. Don't assume.

Dear Writer,

Here’s a #querytip for you. Please do not address me as “Dear Wyrm”. That is not my name, first or last.

#QueryTip - in your writing sample, make sure that you are using those pages EFFICIENTLY. One way you can do that is to keep your dialogue super cleanly written, and use speaker tags to indicate tone, rather than stylizing using punctuation or special formatting.

#QueryTip Don’t say the manuscript is complete but unedited. (Saw this in subs today.) The manuscript you query should be the best you can make it.

#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.
