Dear Query Shark,

I'm risking a bite on the ass here, I'm sure, but I had to write a quick note of thanks.

After several months of hard work – and more than one moment when my laptop was in serious danger of being given a nice hot bubble bath – I have written a query that works. I've gotten requests for the full, one of which is in the hands of my dream agent (not that your own sharky self would not also be a dream agent. It's just that my work is not your cup o'chum.)

The odds are still very long against me, of course. But thank God for this one small victory.

Thank Shark, I mean.

Nice letter. As a sailor, and having once been in the water when a live SHARK came to sniff out the chum my wife had dumped overboard (cleaning a fish actually) I got a kick out ot "bucket o-chum"
