Whoa!  A scammer agent drama right here in the tavern?!

Elkette - do tell - how do you think she even got your name in the first place?

And she was ON QT and created an account?

And left in a HUFF??

Oh man, this is just SO exciting!

So... Elky, how did you respond?  Can we create a 5-Word thread and tailor a response if you haven't already?!

She offered you representation and didn't even read your manuscript yet?  She is smooth. 

We really should help Elky compose her reply.  Lets see.   :censored: :censored: :censored:  No, that's too easy.

You could ask her what that skull & crossbones thing means on her profile at QT.  See what her explanation is.  That could be interesting.

Ha!!!  I totally will.  Okay everyone, come up with what I should say and I'll send it off to her.  I have no idea where she got my info from, which is kind of freaking me out a bit...could she have gotten it from here if she created an account?  If so she might be sending emails to other people as well....

How about,

Dear Ms. Rooney,

I was very excited to get your email!  Wow, an actual agent wants me?  I'm just speechless!!  I did a little checking around on this site I've been on lately, QueryTracker.net, have you heard of it?  They have you listed with a skull and crossbones but I couldn't figure out what that means.  Do you specialize in pirate stories?  Mine is a Victorian romance, but I could write a pirate story for my next book.  Anyhow, I'd love to send you my manuscript.  I charge a $60 reading fee and must be reimbursed for all shipping expenses.  If this is acceptable I will send you my manuscript right away.

Thanks so much!!

though I think you could use a couple more exclamation points at the end there.

Oh man these letters are so great. I can't decide which one I like better. I think we should send one to her, and then one to the Harris agency.
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may no spiders fall on your head.

Dear Mr. Rooney,

Wow, boy am I excited.  I never thought I'd get an agent!  Enclosed is a link to a picture of a 500 dollar bill. http://library.thinkquest.org/TQ0312172/500dollarbill-3.jpg 

I hope that it will be sufficient in my publishing endeavors.  And I hope you don't mind that it isn't real. But of course, you aren't a real agent either, so it should fit quite nicely.


Rot in  :censored: ,
