How To Interpret Your Rejection Letters – Timely Article for Today’s News

Last week I sent out four query letters.  I had three prompt “pass” and one request to read the first 30 pages. I knew I shouldn’t get excited but I quietly did a little happy dance in celebration that my query produced a 25% result. (Not bad.) I quickly put together my first 30 pages, 12 pt font, Times New Romans, double spaced with my original query letter included. I was hopeful since I knew this agency handle a similar novel that I would consider a little brother to mine.

One week later, to my disappointment – the rejection. I did get a nice note back from the agent. “Thank you for sharing your work with me. I really liked your premise but just didn’t connect with your writing style as much as I’d hoped. Sorry not to have better news. Good luck with this project!”

I will keep with my glass-is-half-full attitude and know that I am in good company.  This article was shared with me within hours of getting my “Thanks but no thanks” and I couldn’t help but laugh at his snarky humor and timely words. How To Interpret Your Rejection Letters
