Dear Daniel Pinkwater,
For the last few months I have been writing a book which I really hope to publish. Who does one get a book published? I really had a hard time finding it out. You don’t need to tell me the whole nine yards, or anything, but I thought as an writer you would know. Thank you.
Andrew L. Peberdy.
PS. The other day I was listening to Weekend Edition and I heard you and Scott Simon talking about crocodilian poetry. I have seen that show on T.V where the australian guy in short pants wrestles with alligators, and I think it’s high time somebody gave the ravenous reptiles some sympathy.
PPS. I read Borgel not to long ago, and I was reminded of Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker series. Have you read any of his books? It’s seems like you would that kind of humor.
First finish the book, then start another book. Getting things published is complicated and usually a lot of trouble. If you enjoy writing, and get to be good at it, then it may be worth doing. Of course I like Hitchiker's Guide and the others. I would wear long pants if I were going to wrestle alligators.
