Highly Amusing Words to Query By

The Behler Publications blog recently contained this sarcastic entry regarding the query letters that would-be authors send.

The publisher deals mostly in nonfiction. Mission statement: "We publish personal journeys with socially relevant themes: stories dealing with how people are influenced and changed by their experiences, and how they deal with those repercussions. Not only do we want strong, honest characters, but also strong attention to voice and development. We look for books where readers say, "I'm a better/more thoughtful/smarter person for having read this book."
