Q & A 23 Come on, WHO'S NEXT?!!
Can those waiting in line get a number like the deli or DMV to know when they might be up to bat? This uncertainty pisses me off.
Goodness. Evil Editor has been at this about a month. He would be interested in knowing how many of the agents and editors you query, and who don't respond within a month, receive a followup letter from you, stating that you are pissed off. And how many of them you ever hear from again after that.
If Evil Editor wanted to check on your query letter, he couldn't, as you have signed your comment "anonymous," and have failed to name the book. Of course, if you had named the book, and Evil Editor had suddenly gotten to yours, he would then be deluged with comments from everyone saying how pissed off they are.
You seem to be under the impression that Evil Editor writes each blog entry for the entertainmment of the query writer alone. The truth is, he writes each blog entry for the entertainment of himself alone. Along with, of course, those who have the ability to apply the lessons of other writers' critiques to their own query letters.
