Tips From the Agent: 

“I appreciate when I writer has done his or her research into what kinds of books and authors I represent so the query is targeted appropriately, and why he or she would fit on my list is always good to include in the query. I’m not always looking for more of the same, however, so if your project is different than the majority of my list but you still think we could be a good fit I welcome your query.”
