We’re coming up on the fifth anniversary of KT Literary in the New Year, which means almost five years of posts about publishing, querying, clients, and all the stuff I could find to write about on this here ole blog. Now, chances are, most of you reading now are not the same readers who followed me in the beginning, but much of the advice may indeed be the same. So starting on Saturday, December 22nd, I’m diving into the archives for a series of posts I ran about in 2008. So stay tuned!
On my submissions page, I recommend that writers querying me include the first1 three pages of their manuscript along with their letter. Why these three pages? Mostly because I recognize that the art of writing a good, strong query letter isn’t the same as the art of writing a novel. (What to say or not say in a query letter is a WHOLE other topic to be tackled on another day.)
