I began the querying process last week, sending out so many query letters to agents, that it hurt. Most of their response times numbered in the 8-12 weeks range, which was why I was shocked to see an email in my inbox just yesterday!
Unfortunately... it was a rejection.
I was pretty excited about it though. I've gotten pretty good at taking these things in stride. Some of the most published authors in history were some of the most rejected after all, including two of my favorites: Stephen King and the goddess herself: J. K. Rowling.
In any case, I'm sure this is only the first of many more rejections to come, but I won't give up! This is just a part of the process, after all. Don't worry, this book will be published no matter what, even if I have to do it myself.
Thanks for reading! Don't forget to subscribe to the email list for exclusive promotions and follow the novel's progress on social media.
