*Attach chapter one, final chapter and random middle chapter to an email, along with your bio, synopsis, and blurb in a single, separate attachment. Briefly, (seriously, be BRIEF in your introduction, telling us your life story doesn't change whether we will publish your book, 50 words or less will do it), introduce yourself in the body of the email.
