Two Out of Three Ain't Bad

I'm glad that I've reached a point in the agent-querying process where a rejection doesn't feel like a personal slight. Maybe a year ago, but not now. It's part of the game. Maybe it's because I've had nothing but rejections so far, but eh. It is what it is.

I received my SASE back from Curtis Brown, LTD. A partial request for Warden's Trance that I mailed five weeks ago. Great turnaround time. It was a rejection, but a nice one. I didn't mind. I've only sent out five queries so far. One other rejection, two no replies, and an email request for the first twenty pages (sent!). I don't consider the two no replies as rejections yet (after a few more months, then yes).

Time to start sending out some revised queries (thanks to the wonderful folks at the Fangs, Fur and Fey hook contest, I've tweaked it a tad).

Cross your fingers for me.

I actually enjoy games, which is why I've been poking fun at the whole agent querying process over at my blog the past few days...hee hee.

I received a rejection (isn't that cool? I can type the word without flinching now.) from CB this week also.

Once upon a time I sold Harley's for a brief season. Never thought that anything from there would carry over to here but:

"Some will. Some won't. So What?"

btw, I found my way here from the Blogchain.

Aston - I'll have to pop over to your blog and check out those posts. They sound fun. ;)

Williebee - Thanks for stopping by the blog. Rejections are the first step toward acceptance, right?
