I’m a writer. Once a month or so I will get an unsolicited enquiry, and more often than not, this is how it always turns out.
Client: Hi. I was searching through this site looking for a novelist. I think I have an excellent concept to share, but I wouldn’t have the skills to put it into a book. Can you help me?
Me: I certainly can! What sort of story would you be looking to tell? And what’s your budget for hiring a writer?
Client: Thank you for your time.
Needless to say, I prefer emails from my agent.
