Face-Lift 1053

[Not sure if "Guess the Plot" is worth playing with fake queries, but there are a couple titles now in the queue if you wish to pen a fake plot. Meanwhile, the query below arrived without a title, so . . . ]

Evil Editor--

I speak to you as a peer and not as a mere supplicant.

Since my earliest days I have been destined for greatness. Born apart from other men, my strength, knowledge and mastery the forces which bind all together have been unequaled.

My story is one of love, yes; and betrayal, pain and loss. But I have survived, and conquered my greatest tormentor.

I suggest that you will be wise enough to do what others less like ourselves will not dare to do, and publish my memoirs. Not only for us, but for children, and their generations yet unborn.


Lord Darth Vader

I wondered who could be so arrogant as to pitch a memoir that way and then I read the name (punchline)!!!

good work.

Lovely, just lovely.

You do not believe my memoir will be a NY Times bestseller? Your lack of faith disturbs me.

Do not understimate the power of the Fanboys. With Evil Editor by my side, we will rule the publishing universe and bring an end to the destructive conflict between e-books and hardcovers.

Thank you!

I was torn between Darth Vader and Sauron. I finally decided to use Vader because he's likable.
