Batman Pitches Memoir to Literary Agent Janet Reid

batman23.pngEarlier this week, FinePrint Literary Management agent Janet Reid received an audio query from Batman, pitching his unpublished “fiction novel memoir.”

Reid jokingly instituted a new rule after she heard the query: “Heck with email, all queries must now be audio, and sent by Batman.”

We think all aspiring and frustrated authors in the audience can appreciate the quiet desperation underneath Batman’s plea: “If you’re not interested screw you, because I’m the Batman!” It will give you plenty to think about on your next agent query.
