While that title is one of my favorite songs from Will Rogers' Follies, that's not what I'm talking about. I am so sad! I've been sending out queries all over the place. Well, actually, I've sent them to a select number of agents that I believe might be a good fit for my writing and genre. I tailor all my queries to match the various agents - when I can find information on them. When I can't, I try to make it sound professional.
But at the very bottom, I discovered that I said I hope said agent would consider my manuscript for PUBLICATION. I should have used "representation." Agents don't publish books. I know that. They represent books. Oh, I pray that this one little foul-up won't destroy my chances with the agents I've queried! I can't believe I wasn't more careful.
The Moral of This Story: Check EVERY stinkin' word of your queries! Even when you think you've got it in the bag!
