Secrets of Query Success: An Agent's Perspective

The ever intrepid Nathan Bransford has come up with an intriguing experiment: shuffle a slushpile in an agent's shoes. He has randomly chosen five queries from the 150+ submitted by willing participants, and we, his minions, were instructed to pick one that we (in our slinky agent's footwear) would choose for a submission request. In truth, he has posted the first thirty pages of all five submissions so that we can see how well the queries match the writing.

Fascinating, no?

Check out the queries and the votes at:
