Ok, it’s my birthday, so I’m willing to laugh.
I’ve received two queries today stating that the authors are in need of an agent.
Do these people even LOOK at our website? Gah…
I had two authors whose works I rejected many moons ago send me a spammy thing telling me about their upcoming book events and, gee, they hope I can make it to coo and burble over their accomplishments. I’m happy for them, but I really don’t like distribution lists. Really, truly. My email comes to a place of business, and this sort of cheap trick floods up my already bulging inbox. Besides, it’s not like I established a bestest buddy buddy kinship with either of them.
A word to those whose elevators reach the top floor – never put an editor or agent into your contacts list unless they signed you. Otherwise, forget us. Really. Truly.
On the upside, I lurve my printer. I mean, we’ve been doing this publishy thing for a number of years now, and whoever heard of cranking out 10k units in a week? A WEEK.
Did I mention I lurve my printer?
