In the 1990's, Joe Hill (Locke & Key) asked his father for help on writing a cover letter for a short fiction submission. I think his dad nailed it.
For those of you who don't know, Hill's father is another writer you may have heard of, Stephen King.
In the late 1990s I asked my Dad how to write a cover letter for my short fiction submissions. He was glad to help out. pic.twitter.com/BV5x7qbjqf
