Best line in a query today

"I hate to keep bothering you, but you're one of the few agents that sound like an actual person to me. So it's your own fault."


Me? HUMAN? Not on your life. Even my assistant is reptilian.

Bahahahahaha!!! I had a feeling... Agents are supposed to make writers feel like they're not alone, so I always assumed you guys were all aliens or something instead of reptiles...

:D

I'll borrow a few words from an old Irish Spring soap commercial, apply it to the best query line, and say "I like it, too." Janet, thanks for making your blog engaging and fun. Although you don't represent my genre, I'm a fan. Thanks for so being real.

Sharks are not reptilian. They are not even ichtheous. You ain't foolin' nobody.

Snakes and sharks . . . I'm heady with excitement as I ponder the danger beneath the beauty.
