View Full Version : I forgot to include a salutation in my query?

It was a submission form so you just select who you're sending it to in one of those little boxes. Then there's a separate box for your actual query. It's automatically going to an agent. Anyway, I forgot to put in the "Dear Agent" Part. Will I be rejected for this?

Also, to a different agent, I accidentally left out a comma in my sample chapters. Out of the 5,000 words I pasted, most of of was as flawless as I could make it, but I left out a ONE comma for dialogue. Would I be rejected for this?

Agree with BenPanced, above. And if any agent should ever reject your query on the basis of either of these things, you should thank whatever deity you believe in that you'll never have that person as your agent.
