There will be the occasional agent who requests something strange, such as a “5-page synopsis on lime green paper that smells of cinnamon!” Has any agent, seriously, asked for this?

Not to my knowledge, but I have the paper and cinnamon spray on hand, just in case ;)

As I do not commonly keep those on hand I will, sadly, have to give that agent a berth. Now, if they asked for Pringles, on the other hand... Though I may be able to dig up chocolate-scented paper. Take a while, but...
