- PLEASE WRITE 'QUERY' IN THE SUBJECT LINE
Why? Because I use mac "smart mailboxes" and if you don't write QUERY in the subject line your query will be marooned in my general biz inbox.
- INTRODUCE YOURSELF
Maybe it is just me, but I find it a bit rude when someone writes:
'Here is my manuscript. Want it?'
OK, only a few people actually put it that way but I do get a lot of:
I hope you want to read the full manuscript.
Yes, I sell books but I represent authors.
