    I think the biggest mistake you can make is getting the agent's name wrong. :p

    That and/or sending in raunchy pictures of you writing the book wearing nothing but pink socks and a 16th century feathered hat.

    In a 16th century historical setting...

    Actually, joking aside, the article is good. I can't believe some people would do some of the things the agents remarked upon ...well, okay, I can...

    Is that a book title, or did you mean I should google the subject? Sounds fun. I'm beginning to develop some sympathy ...a teency tiny smidgen of sympathy ...for agents. They must get SO much crap on a daily basis.
