This could be fun; something to let you vent your opinions and ideas. The rules are simple. No direct reference to specific names, websites or blogs can appear in your answers. My first Pet Peeve is in the form of a question.
It you have researched agents/publishers who publish books in your genre, what pet peeve prevents you from placing them on your short-list?
Any agent, who says in their submission guidelines, if they are not interested in your manuscript they, simply will not respond to your query. This falls into my “Bummer” category. I mean here you are after many years of writing, editing and researching whom to submit your query to and they tell you they will not take the time to acknowledge your efforts.
What are your pet peeves?
