What Not To Do

OK, so someone at Teresa's blog stumbled across this gem. From that page, do a search for "Borton" and "Aker". It's nice to have such stunning examples of how not to handle correspondance with editors and publishing houses. While I love my work and want to see it in print and on the NYT Bestsellers List (I need to find a "better odds at winning the lottery" smiley), I just can't see myself pulling the "unappreciated artiste" attitude and burning so many bridges. Especially with editors that gave very good rejections. But he seems to have an agent, so he's gotta be doing something right. Wonder what it is?
