Okay, I'm sounding like a stupid newbie here but what the hay.  What font does everyone use in their submission package?  Not just the query but the synopsis and sample chapters?  I've been using Courier and lately been reading how agents *hate* Courier.  Sheesh.

Thanks!
Chris

Thank you, Legionsynch.  TMS 12 pt it is - it's more compact anyway, which I like :-)

I think that's kind of the standard now, isn't it?

I thought so, too.  But visit any of the writing boards out there, and there's bound to be someone who says something like "Garamond is now what agents want.  They hate TNR." 

Conflicting info is a headache.

Times New Roman 12-point forever!  Spread the  :woot:

I've read on other boards where people say they use courier, but they're lying.  Stick with times12.

Isn't TNR 12 pt standard for everything though?
Can't use anything else in school at least.
