When Queries Attack! Take Five

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a literary agent such as yourself must want to be in possession of my book, "Coercion."

If you like it, esteem it and think very highly of it, then write to me in a manner that promises me many particulars of an engagement--of the novel kind. If not, you are too hasty, sir. Do not say "After reading your novel for little under an hour, I could say with full certainty that you are the last author in the world whom I could ever be put upon to sign."

I shall wait for your letter. Your response should enter my mailbox this evening or never.

I have always been and always shall be... yours.
