SlushPile Hell

One grumpy literary agent and a sea of query fails

84 notes

I hope you’ll represent my fictional novel.

To you and the other countless authors who refer to your books as “fictional novels,” will you please, for the love of all that’s holy and good in this world, stop it. Besides, I don’t represent fictional novels. I represent only poetic poetry, nonfictional true stories, how-to-cook-stuff cookbooks, and children’s books for children.
