Dude. Srsly? I feel some major league snark bubbling to the surface. Since it’s Sunday, I’m trying to swallow it with a Bourbon chaser in my morning cuppa. Just…don’t…do…this. Only noobs do this.
And you want to know the kicker? I was asking for more clarification on the synopsis because I’m intrigued with the story. This could have led to my asking for pages. But now? Fuhgeddaboudit. Even if he sent a Antonio Banderas to my door dressed in rugged jeans and a plaid shirt singing, “You Make Me Feel So Good,” this author would still see my literary backside because he’s a noob.
If you are in querying mode and don’t want to hand out your private email addy, then create a new for, for cryin’ out loud. It’s as tough as going to hotmail, or yahoo. But to tell me that I’m not listed as one of your posse and gee, doesn’t it suck to be you, my reply is no, it sucks to be you because that’s the last bit of time I’ll give you.

You’ll be likely to see more of me if you grow up and act like a professional. Beagle, bring that bottle back here; I’m not done with it.
