A must read
« on: August 16, 2008, 01:23:57 PM »
Dearest Agent and or Publisher,


After publishing my first novel with the help of the wonderful people at Office Max, I decided to try to get this one published with a real book company. It's great. I sent it to Oprah, and I'm still waiting to hear back. My husband and mother both loved it, even if it was hard to read.  As a gimick to sell more books, I thought it would be cool to write the whole thing sdrawkcab (backwards! Kewl, huh?)

The book is about 1200 pages, but I think we could break it up into two or three parts. I hope you like the brownies I enclosed with this letter. I thought it was neat since the book is about a race of aliens called "brownies" because they are brown unlike the traditional green aliens. I have attached a copy of the full manuscript and also sent one to your office and your home address. You can message me on my myspace page. Just search for screen name dunjeonmaster16.

Peace!

Dunjonmaster
