An anonymous commenter in yesterday’s post asked me how I felt about people submitting queries they did not write. This apparently is the result of a discussion in the comments section of another blog (I don’t know which one*).
This isn’t actually a purely straightforward question for me and I’ll have more on my own thoughts tomorrow, but I thought I would broaden the question a bit more:
1) How do you feel about these ghost queries?
2) What about queries that are substantially revised with the help of a critique group, i.e. queries by committee?
3) How much help is appropriate?
4) Is it a good strategy?
Looking forward to this discussion.
