Miss Snark is taking a break from being interrogated by the Secret Service to dive into her slush pile.
Ah, yes. The Eager Beaver lad who spend $13.65 to send me a query letter by Express Mail.
He mailed it on 12/1. It's on my desk now. Yes, I opened it, thinking it might be my acceptance letter from Sundance (Killer Yapp vs The Vegan) but no, it's a query letter.
Guess where it goes? Yup. Right on the pile of all the OTHER letters that arrived in envelopes with a 37cent stamp.
Try not to look like an idiot in your query letters is my standard advice.
Don't BE an idiot and send it the most expensive way possible.
Trust me on this.
