Bad Query 12

Dear Evil Editor,

Here is my novel Lions and Butterflies for you to publish. I'm sure you'll want to publish it because everyone who's read it agrees that it's strong, moving and literary with a hint of raciness and intrigue while being unafraid to tackle the major issues of the day such as cloning, genetic modification and graffiti.

Here are just some of the awesome comments I've received:

"It's wonderful, darling" (my mother).

"Yes, yes, OK, it's great" (my sister).

The leader of the East Sussex and North Worthing Critique Group, who has had poems published by Lulu, said "I have never read any book quite like yours."

My clarinet teacher said he would read it but he hasn't come back to me yet and he isn't returning my calls. I think he must be on holiday. The postman hasn't read it yet either although he keeps promising he will. They both said that they were very excited about reading it.

Let me know when I can expect my first advance.

Yours sincerely,

--Fairy Hedgehog (Miss)

I agree--there's never been quite anything like this.

Yep. Apt description.

Great job, FHH (Miss)!

I almost choked to death laughing.

I'd buy anything the leader of the East Sussex and North Worthing Critique Group recommends.

Thanks, all of you!

This one was fun to do.

Oh Emm Gee, look poems published by Lulu. That person's is the best opinion. I'm sure of it, though mom should just be the clincher.

Poems published by Lulu... that's right up there with Mom.

"poems published by Lulu"

That, my friends, is how success is defined.
