pay f/ing attention!
Any guess what this is?
It arrived at the top of a query today.
Followed by the querier's address.
Followed by something that said Chapter 2.
Later there was a query, and then something that said chapter 1.
In other words, mail merge gone wild.
You can be the best writer in the world here but my initial impression is you're a sloppy one. Am I looking for that in a client? No I am NOT. I am looking for writers who sweat the details. Who are meticulous. Who would no more send an email like this than cut off their left ear. In other words, writers who TEST their mail merge queries several times before sending for real to their target audience.
HOW you query says a lot about you as a writer.
