The rejections come back to you a little quicker.
It was only one, and quite truthfully, I was shocked when I found it in my inbox this afternoon. Not shocked to be rejected (I' m not that vain), but that I'd get a response in less than a day. It was for a query submission only, so I didn't have to fret as much as if I'd sent a synopsis & sample chapter with it. Plus, I already knew this particular agent was super picky. At least it was a polite, nicely worded rejection letter.
I don't know if I'm dense, or I just bounce back quickly. It stung, like a bad sunburn, for about an hour ... and then I let it go. I've got more out already, and more going out before the end of the week. If I get up to a dozen or so with no nibbles, then I might begin to fret a little.
In the meantime -- I'm such a follower! At least three of you have posted snippets or sample chapters of your story on your blogs, and I liked them so much I decided to follow suite. So if you'll direct yourself to my sidebar, I now have the first chapter of my paranormal romance "Gemini Cursed" posted for all the world (okay, only those of you who read my blog) to see.
Or if you're lazy and don't feel like looking to the right (like me) you can just click here to read it.
