You ladies better be careful about what you say about Nathan Bransford.  It turns out he knows about QueryTracker and has been around.  If you go to the main QT site and look him up, you will see that he has joined QT and has even added a comment to his profile.  You wouldn't want him to think that you are after him solely as a sex object now would you?  Men really hate that.  OK, not really.  He'll love you for it.

But it is cool that agents are starting to take notice of QT.  I wonder if we can get him to stop by the forum?  Maybe you ladies could entice him with your come-hither smiles.

Patrick's right.  You women folk & your constant objectifying!  It just needs to stop at once!  We men folk are tired of being placed on mantels & ogled by you all!

Hmm.  I think we've just set up our softball teams.  Us vs. Them.

True, but there's a rumor out there that Billy Shakespeare has a secret weapon.

Or maybe not-so-secret by this point.  I don't know.  Still to scared to look.

Did you really have to bring that up again? (no pun intended)

This could devolve into a truly dangerous hijack... so I think I'll just slink back to the original topic.

My advice on writing a query letter:  Even though writers have been advised to show and not tell, do not enclose R-rated photos of yourself in your query letter.

Oh DO invite Nathan..I'll even throw in a custom avatar. He's already rejected me twice, but he's still cool, as I said.
