Where is the "Like" button on here? That is DEFINITELY the querie letter I'd love to send -- you pegged my thoughts exactly! It's too bad we authors outnumber them by the thousands and it's not the other way around -- they need us more than we need them!
Koevoet--gimme Karma [click applaud]! That's as close as we have to like buttons. BTW, I have gotten an agent since I wrote the query, but now I feel like writing a "Dear editor" letter because they can be as bad as agents on not responding. Sheesh--it never ends.
Karma to you.
