Enjoy is the wrong word for this book, but the editor hopes you take something from it, even if it’s only a whole bunch of new things to be prejudiced about. The bastard offspring of Roger’s Profanosaurus and The Meaning of Liff (although endorsed by neither of those esteemed publications, which would no doubt distance themselves from it faster than Usain Bolt on banned substances), Hand-Knitted Electricity is a ghastly little piece of unpleasantness brought to you by an academic research team which would just as soon burn it in front of a grateful and relieved populace. The public, however, has a right to know, as the News of the World once said, and look what happened to them.

Agent Submission Pack Offer


Most writers have agent submission packs; introductory letter, synopsis, blurb, author biography, CV and the first three chapters or the first few thousand words. I’ll look at your agent submission pack for a flat fee of £29.95, checking it for typos, spelling, grammatical errors, content, layout and presentation. If this helps you get one of those magical “send me the rest” letters, I’ll be happy to look at the rest of your book on a priority basis at normal rates before you send it off.
