Bad Query Letter

Here is my voice post, in response to Robin's post. It's a version of the Bad Query Letter I sent to Evil Editor in response to an exercise.

Finally, someone I can understand.

Sarah Laurenson said...

Great choice. I love that query letter.

Bevie said...

I agree. What's wrong with that query? Maybe you should write me mine. Except my mother won't read what I've written. (I think she was an agent or an editor in a past life.)

Robin S. said...

Wonderful!

EE should take it on right now! If I were an editor,I'd say sold!

And that really was one of the all-time most fun writing exercises.

But hey Sparky, what's THAT supposed to mean...first one you can understand??

pjd said...

Hasn't read it yet but says he's very excited about it. What's wrong with that pub cred? Sounds like a sure fire best seller.

I just heard and fell in love with Sarah's voice, but FH, I could listen to you all day long. Le sigh.

EE, yes this was very simple. The scary thing was how easy it was to think like that.

Sarah, thank you.

Bevie, my mother really does think everything I do is great. Everyone should have a mother like that.

Robin, thank you. It was fun to do, wasn't it?

pjd, thank you. I love your francophony. (It is a word now.)

Interestingly, you remind me of the late Linda Smith at times during this, but I guess that's because it's so quietly funny.

And the Lulu line is a treat.

Ana said...

That's very beautiful. I love how you did that! :)

Interestingly I read out something similiar to a group of people, on my last day at work! :)

fairyhedgehog said...

Whirl, higher praise than I deserve but thank you.

Ana, thank you. Are you going to record what you read for us all to hear?

Kevin Musgrove said...

enormous fun, and nicely read!

fairyhedgehog said...

Thanks, Kevin!

I'm so behind! But I'm glad I'm catching up ... you were made for audio books! I love this, it works so well spoken! I think because of the utter seriousness and confidence that comes across.
