We’ve all talked a lot about what we require and/or ask for in query letters and submissions. We’ve done a number of posts on what a proper and successful query letter should look like and articles on how to make queries work to your advantage. Just recently, though, I got the most mind-boggling submission letter ever. This one holds the record for least amount of effort put into finding an agent.
A self-published book came into my office with a Post-it on the front saying “represent this!”
That’s it. No letter, no phone number, email, nothing. Just a Post-it.
Now that’s professionalism!
