There’s a pretty interesting blog over on Publishers Weekly about SciFi and Fantasy authors being marketed as teen fiction, and vice versa. The blogger makes a pretty good point that in this regard, buying books on the internet has a clear advantage, as you can search for “YA fiction,” or “SciFi”, or the author’s name, and find everything they write, not just what’s shelved in one spot in a bricks and mortar bookstore.
Just went through another pile of queries and it sometimes amazes me the simple things that queriers don’t do. Is it that hard to personalize your email? To make sure your book’s title actually appears in your query? I know I throw a lot of information up here on the blog, and I don’t expect people who are querying me to read every word I’ve ever written (some of them — like that Sweet Valley High rip-off novel I wrote in middle grade, about a dancer and the guy she liked named Lance — are totally stink-o), but don’t blithely ignore the easy-to-find submission guidelines and list of genres I’m looking for, ok?
