Psychos abound

February 25, 2009

A scary thing about working for an agent is that sometimes unbalanced people will fix on you.  Considering we get submissions from prison, this is no laughing matter.  The worst are the people who drop by.  Coming to an agency in person with your unsolicited manuscript is the best way to get rejected.  (The second is calling.  While not everyone who calls is a psycho, if we had the 100 people a week who sent queries calling to pitch, we’d need to hire a full time phone operator.)
