noblew – 2008-05-29 8:17 PM When sending a query letter for a novel, do you have to send actual clips, or would a list of credits suffice? If you do have to send clips, what sort and how many would you suggest?
Only send clips when actual clips are requested. This is rare in fiction. A simple list of good credits is usually enough.
If you have to send clips, the actual stories you clip out of magazines, or good photocoies, will do. Just send one or two, and send ones as appropriate to the novel as possible.
