A week passed with an insufficient number of pages has been a blister to my eye. - Anthony Trollope
Well then who, exactly, are you SUPPOSED to threaten?(Oh, and for all the crazies who might think that a perfectly valid question, so very kidding.)
A while ago, if I'm remembering correctly, Kristin mentioned someone coming to her building and hanging out in the lobby, or something like that, trying to pressure her into looking at his material. Considering that we both work in downtown Denver, I'm so glad I read that post in time. Whew.
Okay, I started out writing a joke response about a long, involved con to get your ms in her hands. Halfway through, I deleted it. Agents have enough trouble with the nuts out there already -- I wouldn't feel right putting ideas in their heads. I mean, seriously, I have no idea why manners and common-sense are jettisoned as soon as these folks type "THE END".
Of course, I'm not saying YOU'RE crazy. Just to be clear. But who knows what lurkers you've attracted?
Don't worry, I realized you weren't referring to me. :)I've heard some very strange stories over the years about how agents and editors have been approached. No doubt they're all nervous at the slightest sign of weirdness.
