I have been published but was orphaned. First my line closed, then my editor left the editor world. In my agent search should I tell the agent my ex-editor once called my writing "quirky"? To her it was a good thing apparently, but I've never been certain I should pass that info on.
Well, if you are querying Miss Snark, you bet. As any reader of this blog knows, Miss Snark is into strange and weird. Quirky is a sort of genteel version of that, but it's appealing.
However, if you do not know an agent is into that, take a look at his/her website. Watch for the adjectives and adverbs the agent uses to describe the work s/he likes. Use those to describe your work if at all possible. Sort of like mirroring...when you cross your arms and tilt toward your honeybunch after he crosses his arms and leans toward you. Mirroring is an effective negotiation tool; Miss Snark uses it with officers of the law frequently.
