ER's book proposal, redux
In my e-mail box just now! Woo!
Dear Mr. Redneck:
Thank you very much for submitting your proposal for (Catchy Book Title) to (Academic Press). Your project sounds interesting and I enjoyed reading the sample chapters. However, in order to get a better understanding of you how deal with and analyze the (Book Topic) I would appreciate receiving one or two further sample chapters from the main body of the manuscript.
I look forward to reading the additional materials and wish you a nice day.
Woo! And again, I say, Woo!
(whose excitement is tempered by his personal acquaintanceship with someone who got all the way *past* the formal outside review stage and *still* ultimately had her manuscript rejected. But hey, anything beats "no thanks"!)
