I find that I am never at a loss when it comes to receiving queries that are generic in nature. However, this is one of my major pet peeves. It makes me grumpy just to see it. Especially, the queries that begin with “Dear Editor”.
I am a literary agent, not an editor. Regardless, I do have a name and I so love when authors take the time to find and use it when querying me!
Just my little rant for the day. I think I’ll take a double shot of strong coffee and see if there are any professional queries in the mass pile.
