EVEN WHEN I SAY PLEASE REPLY TO THIS EMAIL, they still send it separately. Do no authors use Gmail conversations?!? AHHHHHHHHHHH.
Most of the new emails start with "REQUESTED MATERIAL" or something like that. Yes, I KNOW it's supposed to be there and isn't random stuff because I DID THE REQUESTING.
His email goes on to detail the violent acts he wishes to (but probably will not) perform.
So. I think it's pretty safe to say that it's generally best to submit your manuscript like this:
- Send your query with a subject line like "Query for [name of project]."
- When you get a request (likely with the same subject line as the one you sent), hit Reply to that agent's email. If they ask that you send the work to a different email address, still hit Reply and then copy and paste the specified address.
- In the body of that email, paste a nice 2-3 line note and, below that, your query.
- Attach your synopsis and full manuscript (as a total of two files) or your proposal and sample chapters (again, a total of two files) to this email.
