The Renegade Writer

A little bit rock, a little bit existential

Thanks to Justin for pointing out to us that someone at amazon.com has a sense of humor — or is ¬†simply a frustrated freelance writer filled with existential angst.

Check out the page for The Renegade Writer’s Query Letters That Rock. The best quip about the mixup in the comments below will win a signed copy. Signed by me and Linda that is. Winner announced on Friday, March 12 at 5:00 p.m ET. Or maybe not. ¬†– DB (follow me on Twitter!)

    Logic may indeed be unshakeable, but it cannot withstand a man who is determined to write. Where was the editor he had never seen? Where was the features meeting he had never reached? He raised his hands and spread out all his figners. But the hands of one of the men closed round his BlackBerry, just as the other drove the knife deep into his heart with the words: “Thanks, but that’s not quite right for us.”

    Kafka’s ‘Query Letters That Rock,’ now entirely cockroach-free!

    Those who are willing to publish any of their writing with typos will not find this book helpful. For everyone else, it is essential.

  4. You guys are killing me!
