Are you open to queries?
Are you open to poetry submissions?
Are you open to middle grade fiction?
Are you up for a little skullduggery?
These emails get discarded with no reply.
Well, except for that last one.
I'm always up for skullduggery, foreign and domestic.
If you don't know, just query.
That will be less annoying than the email you send asking if I'm open to whatever you're wondering about.
And better yet, you'll hear back. I respond to almost all my queries.
I'm not going to shame you on Twitter for querying outside my stated interest areas.
The last three clients I signed write in areas you're going to be surprised to hear about. (No, it's not dino-porn, and no, it's not fantasy.)
And even if I was one of those loathsome agents on Twitter who make fun of writers, what do you care? You're not going to let those boors stand in your way. Are you?
