He's also a regular commenter here and might have won a flash fiction contest.
In other words, we're pals AND I know his name.
Too bad my spam filter didn't.
Priscilla is a petulant thing. She is stupid as only a literal-minded thing can be (not quite on the level of sheep in that she's not quite suicidal but close.)
When I tell her in no uncertain terms that AuthorPalOMine@SharkForBrains.com is a pal, and his emails should be color coded green and speedily sent to my inbox with a trumpet flourish, she will do that.
But she'll ONLY do that if the email is AuthorPalOMine@SharkForBrains.com.
If it's AuthorPalOMine@AuthorPalOMine.com, Priscilla balks.
And by balking I mean she does not color code it green, does not speedily deliver it to my inbox and all trumpets have fallen silent.
Given we all have multiple email addresses (I have six, three of which you'll see associated with my agenting gig) it's really important to remember that Priscilla and her ilk require consistency.
Always query from the same email address. Always follow up from that address if you're doing revisions or anything else.
If you're pals with a shark, and you know you're going to change email addresses, let me know. That way I can make sure Priscilla's instructions are updated.
Here's the reason you want to do that: If you send something with an attachment, it's likely to get sorted into spam if your address isn't in my address book. Once you're in spam, my response time drops like a rock cause I do forget to check it sometimes. Oh, I'll find you eventually sure, but neither of us really want a delay like that.
I do pay attention to the people I know, but the way I make sure of that is by color coding your email address. Change your email address and you've stymied me. I'm pretty sure this is NOT what you want to do.
