“Um…er…who are you?”

​Here’s some publishy advice: If you spoke to an editor about your story at a conference, please don’t assume we remember what your book is about. We talk to LOTS of writers every day. Always, always, always include a full synopsis in your query letter, while mentioning that we met.

I just had someone email me a few pages of her work and mentioned that I’d asked her to refine her writing when we met at a writer’s conference. I have no idea what I meant by this without further context…which she failed to provide. No synop, either. Wah.

Help a goil out!
