Info in cover letters

Hello Miss Snark,

I'm in the process of agent hunting. Recently a major publisher (Avon) requested a partial. Is this worth mentioning in my query to agents?

Thanks.



yes. But you have to mention which editor asked for it.

The ever-wonfderful (though not quite so snark) Kristin Nelson blogged on this a while back Unfortunately, she has no Snarkivist, but you can probably nd i with a bit of rooting around.

Gee, can you tell this keyboard was the cheapest Wal-Mart had to offer?

Are you submitting to editors at the same time you're querying agents? Do you worry that an agent might prefer to approach editors on her own ...
