Moonrat over at Editorial Ass just posted this, about how an author attempted to pitch a book over the phone by pretending to be calling on behalf of an agent.*
You know that phrase "the mind boggles?" That's how I felt when I read Moonrat's entry. Who does this?
*Moonrat's response also confirmed for me that I don't think I would ever want to change careers and be an agent or an editor. Because she tried to give a kind and informative response to an author who was either (a) seriously misguided or (b) had a crap agent. And my response would have been...different from that. And probably R-rated.
