  • 13:11 Writers who don’t take opportunity to send sample pages w/ their query baffle me. Are they just not reading our guidelines? #
  • 13:28 .@amydezellar I think the default is (and should be) don’t send pages unless they’re asked for in the agent’s guidelines. #
  • 13:34 .@writerscanvas When there are conflicting guidelines, always go with ones on the agent’s own web page (if they have one). #
  • 13:36 .@jjochwat I’d instead assume that if the agent wanted to be able to see pages, they’d have put them in their query guidelines. #
  • 13:49 .@SpookCentral If you haven’t finished your novel, don’t query. Possible exception is if you’re already well-published. #
  • 13:51 Yes, I am apparently avoiding reading queries by answering questions about queries. I’m going to stop soon. Really. #
  • 13:53 @ianthealy LOL #
  • 14:00 @RissaWatkins I usually judge worth of an anth. credit based more on publisher and editor than sales numbers. And, for me, never a negative. #
  • 14:08 @KissMyQuery Probably personal pref. issues, but things can quickly engage reader other than main conflict (voice, prose, characters, etc.). #
  • 14:09 Thanks for the #FollowFriday nods @Writers_Cafe @DoctorCara @RuthanneReid #ff #
  • 14:09 Okay, going to turn off twitter so I can get work done (and hopefully head out a bit early to enjoy gorgeous weather). #
