In Reply to: An agent's advice about query subject line posted by Farmer on April 22, 2010 at 11:23:42:
Why not take a few minutes and go to the agent's web site and actually READ the submissions guidelines?
: That agent offers some advice about email queries, specifically what to put in the subject line.
: She says she SORTS her MANY email queries by the subject line. Here is her advice:
: GOOD: Query for (TITLE OF YOUR BOOK HERE)
: BETTER: Query for (TITLE OF YOUR BOOK HERE) a novel OR non-fiction
: BEST: Query for (TITLE OF YOUR BOOK HERE) a novel OR non-fiction/category
: Bad: A TITLE
: Bad: RE: Query for... (RE: That makes her think it's a reply to a query)
: Worse: Hi or Hello!
: The best approach is, as always, to read the submissions page at the agent's web site. It will usually tell you what to write as the email subject line.
