I have officially had my query letter ripped by the Holy Evilness and his muttonchops. My first reaction was: "Wow! My query is an embarrassment."
After a few hours, and a few minion comments my second reaction was: "Holy Smokes, I am such an amateur!"
Even with the bashing I feel the saws and jaws were necessary. The constructive criticism I received was enough to show me some of the problems. The hard part is fixing them.
The biggest lesson(s) is not letting the teeth shred your body, maintaining your leather skin, and keeping an open mind.
