A WORD OF ADVICE

Dear Self-Publishing Company,

If you're going to spend the the money on stationary and postage to solicit me, you should probably spell my name correctly. Or at least come close. I have no idea who Beth Chybik is.

Oh, and you might want to spend two seconds googling the writers you're soliciting. Note: A writer who's currently writing for a major NYC publisher (and getting paid for it) probably isn't interested in your services. But thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Beth Ciotta

You mean Beth Chybik isn't a pseudonym for those XXXX rated books?

(Just kidding.)
