Recently I've heard from several queriers who discovered, to their horror, they'd sent queries with some pretty big splats. Things like not including pages, or sending a query with glaring typos, or in one hilarious instance, using an email address that wasn't his name, but some sort of nom de plume from Hell.
Fortunately I am behind on answering queries, so I hadn't seen any of these howlers. No harm, no foul...except.
I sort incoming queries by date; anything you send after the initial query won't be adjacent to the initial query.
Don't send me an email just saying you made a mistake.
Don't say "I sent
you a query from the email address BetterToRuleInCarkoon, but my correct
email address is FelixButtonweezer212".
Don't send just the pages you forgot to include with a note "here are the pages I forgot."
Send the query AND the pages.
Say "I forgot to include them, here are the pages and the query."
To fix a splat, start fresh.
Send the whole query all over again.
Note on the second query that you're fixing a mistake on the first one.
That way I don't think it's a duplicate.
If I have to go digging around trying to find a query to match with this new one, it reduces your chances that I'll read either.
You don't want that.
It's ok to make mistakes.
I've made some real howlers in my day (ok, yesterday).
It will not consign you to some blacklist of ne'er do wells.
DO give yourself the best chance to recover by starting over.
Fess up to the f/up so I don't think you just duplicated your query.
Then hit me with your good stuff.
