Queries Waiting (0)


Below, listed in the order received, are the titles of books whose query letters have been submitted for ridicule, but which have not been critiqued.

In order to offer the "Guess the Plot" feature with each query critique, Evil Editor needs his minions to suggest amusing fake plots for the titles. Send your fake plots as comments to this post. Try to limit them to 50 words. Don't worry if your plot is ridiculous; the actual plots usually are, as well.

Titles will be added to the list as new query letters come in, so check back. If you would be heartbroken to submit a fake plot, only to find it wasn't used (we usually use five fakes), don't participate. We don't want any hurt feelings out there.



The queue is empty! It's the perfect time to submit your query. Yes, you.

I had intended to submit a fake plot for the Celery story but I don't know where to send it.

Same place you sent the comment.

"This is me reading a query from a complete imbecile", reads the caption under one of the pictures in Hannah Roger's Photo gallery.

Interestingly she never gave her email address!! What sort of a person, who is looking for query from writer, would do that?

In the absence of her email I am writing here because you endorse her.

Yeah, that Hannah's got a nerve. Then again, her staff are absolutely gorgeous. When choosing my short list of agents, that's the main criterion I look at, if the staff look like complete trolls, I'm not interested. Because good taste when hiring translates into good taste when reading manuscripts. So Hannah's at the top of my list. And I hear she also refuses to deal with ugly editors, too.

Hey EE! Since I'm a twitter user, and I follow you, would you mind maybe tweeting when new queries appear in the queue please? Thanks!

Good idea.

is there a way to search older GTP and openings for a specific title? I submitted Christopher's Treasure opening years ago and you even included it in one of your books (thank you!). I'd like to see the comments again before I revise but I have no idea what the number was or even what year it was.

I typed the name Christopher into the search box at the top left of the blog. Among the results were several queries and openings, the one you want apparently being: http://evileditor.blogspot.com/2007/06/new-beginning-295.html.

Yay more queries! I've gotten out of the habit of checking every day, and feel guilty. Please forgive me.
