I don't know if this belongs here, if it isn't i'm sorry.


Anyway, I just came across this site. I don't know if anyone has already seen it, but i found it extremely funny.

It's a fake query letter, showing you how not to write them.

Enjoy.

Hahaha that's hilarious and I bet there are agents who've received variations of that letter, only for real.

I wonder if an agent has ever gone on to ask for a partial on a query like that:roll:

Wow... I would love to see the agent's "form rejection" to that one! *giggle*

Hey! What's my letter doing on that site? Someone might steal my idea now!
Hmm maybe they'll like my other idea...a sequel to Sharks Tale. Called the Codfather. I tell ya it'll give a whole new meaning to the words "swimming with the fishes!" I'd better not carp on about it for now. :D
