This is a great series! I know it's tough to find reliable information about the whole querying process. I appreciate the tips. :)

Great vlog, like always, Ava! The only thing I would add about the stakes is to make them personal for the protagonist too. Saving the world is a noble goal, but saving the world AND the five-year-old orphaned neighbor boy who always shared his M&Ms brings heart into it.

Thanks, Briana! I'm happy to hear you're enjoying the vlogs! :)

Thanks so much, Laura! That's actually a really excellent point, and one I forgot while I was filming, but I totally 150% agree. The stakes absolutely have to be personal to really hit that note.
