IF AN ADULT MAKES ANY TYPE OF SEXUAL ADVANCES ON A MINOR THEY ARE DISGUSTING. EVEN IF THE MINOR GAVE CONSENT AND ARE OF LEGAL AGE TO. THAT ADULT SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN TO MAKE ANY TYPE OF ADVANCES ON A MINOR IT IS GROSS AND WRONG

*bows deeply* dear Duke, congratulations on your book! I was wondering if you had any tips/advice for writing query letters and/or finding agents?

*Curtsies* Thank you! And yep. Three main things:

  1. Don’t do it before you’re ready. Way too many young writers jump the gun on the query letter/agent thing. Take your time. There’s no deadline. The more drafts you do, the better your odds are of getting an agent’s attention. 
  2. Do your research. Learn what a good query letter looks like. Follow agent blogs (QueryShark is a great one). Again, the more you know, the better your chances are of writing a query letter that gets noticed. Find out which agents are looking for submissions, and who represents the kind of stuff you’re writing. Figure out whether you’d rather be with a big huge agency or a smaller boutique-y one. (There are pros and cons to both.) You should have a reason for querying every agent you query. 
  3. Accept that you will get rejected. I queried twenty-five agents. Only three of them expressed an interest. About seven sent polite ‘thanks but no thanks’ notes, one sent a weirdly personal rejection, and the others never responded at all. It doesn’t mean your writing is bad. It’s just not what they’re looking for. 

Besides that, be patient. This is not a short or simple process.

Furuya & Miyuki, aka the battery of our hearts for my partner because she nailed her test today and I’m really proud of her! She’s been working hard so she deserves this little gift.

I think the folks that run the promo's for Teen Wolf get on tumblr...

I mean…think about it. All these promo’s for season three remind me of all the tags we use. (or at least one I use)

I honestly won’t be surprised if the next one is something like this…

  • Yakov: Viktor is a second rate coach
  • Yakov: Viktor isn't taking this seriously, what a joke
  • Yakov: if your student is comforting you, you're not ready to be a coach Viktor
  • Me: damn okay slow down Yakov the man literally just decided this specific career path at the last second and he's going with the flow and what is that I hear is that Yuuri doing a quad flip with enough rotation in the second half of his program to surpass Georgi by a LOT and ooo is that the sound of Yurio not getting first in the next competition and HAHA your best skater left you aka Viktor so shut up U dusty sack of Russian grumpy cat
