Dear Oh Great Goddess of Snarkiness,
I would like to start a book in another language for one page that's not the main language of the book. If I warn the agents in both the query and cover letter, would they reject it based on this? Would it hurt the marketability of the book to do this? I have a reason for doing this. I do
not want to persist to do this for the rest of the book, just the first page.
It would also not appear to be roman letters either.
This is something you might add in if someone wants to read the full, or even better not until the book is slated for publication (similar to an acknowledgment page that is added last). Even if you warn me it's there it's pointless to include it cause I can't read it.
I vote no on including anything that makes me think you're clue free.
