Blogless_Troll's comment on the Time article linked to in the post titled "A New Publishing Model" (a few posts below) inspires this exercise. How would an agent feel about receiving an e-query in which there were several links to semi-relevant web sites?
Step 1. Use this random number generator to get one integer between 1 and 593.
Step 2. Search the blog for the Face-Lift with that number.
Step 3. Choose one of the five fake plots, (Don't change the title.), and write a query letter for that book.
Step 4. Insert two or three links that barely have some tangential relevance to the query. They can be real, working links, or fake ones you make up. No real links to porn sites, your own (or your friend's) web site or blog, or sites that are more entertaining than this blog.
