Dear Miss Snark,
When sending sample chapters with a query, is it acceptable to send non-consecutive chapters if an agent hasn't posted a rule stating otherwise?
My concern is that while chapters 1-3 of my comic novel are funny, they're not representative of the full-tilt depraved craziness that kicks in around page 50.
Instead of sending chapters 1-3, could I send chapters 1 & 2, then, say, sexy chapter 10 with a small bridge paragraph preceding it?
This kind of thing makes me NUTS. If I get stupid ass shit like this I STOP READING at chapter 2.
First, if you're any kind of writer, I won't know what the HELL is going on in chapter 10 if I haven't read 3-9. If I CAN understand chapter 10 you might consider writing for Days of Our Hives or other soapy formats.
Second, oh there is no second, just do not do this.
