Best Opening Line in a Query Today

Dear Ms. Reid,

Although, I’m a little terrified of swimming with sharks, I’ve decided to face my fears. Next up bats and yellow gummy bears.

Yellow gummy bears are wrong on so many levels.

Jennifer said...

That's brilliant. :)

Editor said...

Hilarious, and fair dues to the author for such a opening, but the question nobody wants to ask here is:

Did the accompanying query and potential manuscript live up to the initial raconteur's foot in the door?

Dawn said...

Love it.

Jessica said...

I have the same question as Editor. Was the rest of the query as fantastic?

Who isn't afraid of yellow gummy bears? Hello?! They're tiny, chewy bears! What's not to fear?
