Genre Confusion
« on: June 26, 2018, 05:41:16 PM »
I have a book.
I certainly do.
I like my story
and you'll like it, too.

The words are all small
and easy to say.
So even a grown-up
can come in and play.

The story's exciting
and full of surprise.
With murders and stabbings
and multiple wives.

There's stalking and drinking
and snakes on a plane.
The werewolves are bloody,
the zombies eat brains.

A Mafia don
and a vampire, too,
they contract a hit man
to kill the whole crew.

It's a fabulous book
filled with violence and gore.
You'll read it and read it
and go back for more.

There's hookers and junkies.
Drug runners and snipers.
There's CIA monkeys
And KGB vipers.

So hey, madame agent,
so what do you say
to a picture-book story
done HBO-way?

I think it's a winner.
I think it's a hit.
You make me my millions,
I'll give you your split.

Put down your coffee
and put down your scone.
Just sharpen your pencil
and pick up the phone.

Deer Doctor S:

Read your manuscript?

 :rant: Not
 :rant: without you
 :rant: hiring
 :rant: my son-in-law the Book Doctor first!
That's where I get MY cut.

Stalking, stabbing, blood-sucking what-nots. The nerve!

I printed this out and read it to Mrs. Rock.

Actually, I think a letter like that might get some nibbles! It's awesome! I wonder what the query shark would make of it.

Kudos. :clap:
