Dear Evil Editor,
I wanted to begin 2010 by offering my sincere thanks for your advice. I submitted my query letter to you in April of 2007 (Face-Lift 320). As a result of your suggestions (and those made by your minions) I received offers of representation from three agents. I have now sold four young adult novels! The first book, Tagged, will be published on March 1, 2010 by Harlequin Teen. The second, Past Midnight, will be published on September 1, 2010, and books three and four will be released in 2011.
When I began the writing process, I needed all the help I could get. Reading your blog was an invaluable tool for me. Thank you for your time, your advice and your wit.
