Author's Questions

Hey people! I was on my blog and realized I hadn't posted in a while. I was thinking of something I could help my readers or authors with and came up short. So, I thought why not let the people ask questions and me answer them? Kind of like a Q&A post for anyone who has questions for literary agents, literary information or any kind of dealings with books. So, I'm leaving this post open for anyone who wants to ask me a question!

The date is to be released and my new website is being thought out also. My dad has some friends that can help me make it great! :)

Be Nice

I wanted to take some time today to talk about being nice. On the door of a place where I live there is a sign  that reads: "It's nice to feel important, but more important to be nice." I feel that this needed to be said to authors. Agents are very busy people. I feel some authors do not know the hard work and time that go into being a literary agent. They become impatient with agents because of the time that it takes to get an answer.

Believe me I understand. I started out submitting my material and that is how I became a jr. agent at the Corvisiero Literary Agency. I know the frustrations of having to wait.
However, this doesn't mean to get angry with an agent because she/he is taking too long. Especially, when the agent takes the time out to give you pointers to improve your novel.

A few things authors need to know.

1. Agents are super duper busy. Be patient.

2. Please do not send rude emails, we WILL get back to you.

3. When an agent gives you advice, do not get mad, take it or not. It's up to you.

4. When an agents says 'this is not for me,' and gives you advice, it does not mean they are interested, they are just trying to help you out.

5. Please be respectful. It is a stressful job to be an agent and we have tons of queries to read. Your query is not the only material we have to read.

 Last and not least....if you are rejected...try, try again! :)

More thoughts on query letters!

Since I'm now agenting at the Corvisiero Literary Agency and reading and accepting queries, I thought I might drop a few lines and help you aspiring authors out there.

One of my teachers, journalism teacher, was talking about things that got on his nerves not too long ago. I got upset when he started talking about receiving queries that the author obviously didn't follow the guidelines. I thought it was stupid of him to be so picky.

Well call me Ms. Picky because I've turned into him.

Well...I wouldn't say I'm really picky, but I've noticed things that have gotten on my nerves as well. So, I thought I would write a quick blog about how authors can improve their queries, so agents won't toss them into the trash pile.

First off, READ THE GUIDELINES! It doesn't take that long to read how the agent wants their emails to be. This will help know what the agent is looking for and also shows the agent that the author cares enough about their work to check and see first.

Secondly, please, please, do not slop over your query. Make sure there are NO grammatical mistakes before sending it off. Seeing mistakes in the query shows the agent there are plenty in their work as well.

Third, this is something that rubs me the wrong way. When an author sends his query to all the agents in the same email! That is crazy! If you do not have the time to seperate the emails do not send them. And plus, not all agencies want their queries the same way! How could you possibly send it to that many agents at once! That is bonkers!

Fourth, make sure your email is pretty. Do not paste it in a big blog of text. This makes my head hurt really bad. Make some paragraphs for pete's sake. Huff.

Fifth and final, do not send three or four queries in the same email. Send one book at a time. I'm not superwoman. I need to focus on one query at a time, not three different summaries. It's confusing and not to mention lazy!

:) Those are just some things that I had on my mind. I hope this has helped a little bit!

P.S I don't normally like attachments. :)
