Ok, so let’s say, for argument’s sake, that I’m hot on the trail of this author, and I MUST have this book. Now, is this any way to begin the love-in process? Telling me that I have to fill out a friggin’ request just to talk to you – YOU WHO QUERIED ME – fries my bananas in ways you cannot imagine.

Not only will I never, ever, not-in-a-million-years fill out any damn request, but I will have the beagle sew up a voodoo doll in your likeness and stick pins dipped in Ex-lax into your cottony little body and cackle gleefully while imagining you repeatedly rushing to “the convenience”  while typing up another query letter.

Folks. For the love of all that’s holy, if you’re going to query, do some emergency repair work on your rectal-cranial inversion and get a separate, dedicated email address, you toolbag.

    Hey don’t hold back, Lynn, I am tired of you sugar coating these tthings, tell us how you really feel?

    And is that the beagle’s new friend?

  3. Ach, I know…I’m been a bit of a cranky pants, aren’t I? It’s just that this type of behavior is so achingly irritating. And it happens more than one would think.

    I won’t even fill out that silly form for my FRIENDS, let alone a total stranger.

Tell me what you really think
