Recently I received what might be the most speechless-inducing email I've ever received:
Hello Sarah.I found your blog online. I have a manuscript that fits into the crime/suspense category. I am presently trying to get the manuscript to publishers. Do you have any suggestions on publishers who love a great crime/suspense story? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
XYZ Literary Agency
Now, I do like to give people the benefit of the doubt. But if you're calling yourself an agent, um, shouldn't you know these things already? Or at least be willing to research publishing trends and tastes yourself?
I really feel sorry for the client.
