Don't be funny

I just heard back from a publisher that looked at my manuscript and said that they found it entertaining and the subject matter was unique but they were worried, quote, "about the constant humorous narrative."

So here was my response.

Thank you for your quick feedback on the manuscript.

For your review, I've submitted a revised edition where I kick dogs every other chapter.

I hope this balances the tone of the book to your liking.

Best -

You have to see this article. I don't take exception with the notion that some homeopathic method might be of some use to someone out there among the 6.7 billion of us, but this article includes this tidy little (grammatically horrific) gem which you neither can dispute nor ignore...

"Lack of libido is an chief issue in fertility. The probability to become pregnant are greater if a woman is sexually active."

Whoever wrote this seriously knows how to party.

This girl was subjected to cat calls by an NFL team?

Some of the 53 guys in a mens locker room flirted with her? Really? I don't believe it.
