SlushPile Hell

One grumpy literary agent and a sea of query fails

53 notes

Dear agent, it’s xxxx here, the guy who sent you seven manuscripts recently. Listen I just finished another one. And note it has 19 chapters not ten after the tenth I skipped a page by mistake. Sir you are in control. do what you always do I won’t pester you. GET READY TO BE BLOWN BY THIS WORK!

You really had me hooked until the last line. I consulted with my wife, and while she’s a very loving, supportive agent’s wife, she’s not cool with this. Sorry.
