I know, of course I know, that a query is the “do/do not pass go” of publishing. I never had trouble with them before witnessing the recent queryfail Twitter thingamagig.
Sometimes, all the advice can become paralyzing. I know to use a person’s name, not to tell them I’m the next Stephen King, or to assure them I’ve written a bestseller. Pretty sure I’ll automatically include my contact info, say nice friendly things, and keep it short and to the point.
Oy, why oh why did I Twitter?
Wish me luck.
