"I'm sorry, I haven't made a sale yet--Charmin tissue has more print than I do." Her reply: "Charmin tissue has more job prestige than I do." We became friends after that and I sold her three submissions later. Lesson: try to be honest and original. There's no need to pander (suck up) to an editor. We're all human, and editors find it refreshing to find humanity in a letter, when in fact, they deal with mediocrity and boredom all day. Don't apologize for anything, but No Bragging.
The Crew of Planet Janitor are contracted to survey the damage to a lunar mining facility caused by a meteor shower. When a second job proposition proves too sweet to turn down, Captain Zachary Crowe must enter the devastated base. But will the reward be enough to outweigh the consequences of taking on such a risky mission.
