A couple of writers who have queried me so far have not included their address and telephone number. Although I ask for initial approaches via email, I would still like to receive the same information as if you were querying by post. That is, a letter of introduction, a synopsis and first three chapters (or 50 pages). Everything should be pasted into the body of the email.
Why would I like to know a writer’s address? Firstly, I’d like to know for a start whether you’re in the UK or overseas, and secondly I’m nosey. Telephone number(s) are even more critical because, if I’m interested to take things further, or I have some questions that are better suited to a phone conversation than email, there’s a fair chance I’m going to ring you!
