Just a short note in case anyone cares what editors think. I have, as advertised, a new pet peeve: authors who submit stories with cover letters/emails that do not actually say that they are submitting their story for your consideration for publication.
All I’m asking for is a simple statement. I would like you to consider this story for publication. Or similar.
Is that too much to ask?
