Re: YA Query—FB

Hi Shipple, Thanks for your feedback. The only thing I had trouble with is—I'm not sure what a teen speaker is. I googled it and all I could come up with is a motivational speaker for teens. Is this what you meant? And—from your experience—do you see a lot of these motivational speaker types on Face...

Resume?

An agent I want to query requires a resume. I'm used to agents needing query letters and synopses, but does anyone know what an author's resume should look like? Or can you please point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Re: Query: Acea and the Animal Kingdom

I interpreted it as, "This is the first novel I've ever written."

Maybe others wouldn't read it that way, but either way, I wouldn't mention it.

Re: YA Query?

I actually think it looks great. I would go with your second revised edition though.

Re: Removing Tabs

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I'm stunned at how little I know about this, and also impressed at everyone's expertise. This is not easy for me to figure out. I am blown away that I wasn't supposed to use tab all this time. I always thought that's how you write. You finish a paragraph, hit retu...
