STATUS: You guys know the drill. First day back in the office after being away for a week means I’m just trying to take care of emails. 280 to be exact.

Sometimes the behavior of aspiring writers looking for agents is incomprehensible to me.
In January 2007, we moved our office to the historic SH Supply Building on Wazee Street in the heart of Lower Downtown Denver. We are literally 3 blocks from Coors field.
This was two and a half years ago.
Yesterday I received a package that had been forwarded to us from our old address. Not only that, it was a full manuscript (which we don’t accept unless requested and when requested we have it delivered electronically). And it was sent from Korea by certified mail.
What a colossal waste of time, paper, and money is pretty much all I could think.
Actually, it’s amazing we got this package as very little gets forwarded from an address that’s 2 1/2 years old.
But really? You were interested enough in our agency to keep our original info on file but then didn’t take the time to verify that everything was up-to-date by checking out our website (a url that has never changed over the years)?
