your (correct) name goes here

Dear lovely agent I queried today at 1:45pm:

I researched you, I swear. I read a selection of the books you represent. I scoured your blog for advice. I pored over your online interviews. I know your pet peeves. I know your alma mater, your favorite brand of shoes, and your weapon of choice. And yes, I know your name, I swear.

You might not think so, judging from the email I sent you at 1:45 pm, in which I forgot to include the second half of your last name.

…and the second email a few seconds later in which I apologized for leaving off the second half of your last name–and linked the second half of your last  name to the first half of your last name with a hyphen.

Yes, I know that you have two last names. And no hyphen.

I can not email you a third time to apologize for getting your name wrong a second time. All I can say is that I researched you. And I know your name, I swear.

All my best,

Lara Ehrlich
