Tip of the Week: Put your phone number and email on every thing.

Don’t limit it to just your cover letter. Put those important contact points on the first page of your manuscript, on every page of your query – like I said, everything. Things get lost. It would be a shame if your work never got acquired because there was no way for the editor to contact you.
