BUT IT'S SO AMAZINGLY AWESOME.
So, last night, I was bored and decided to talk to some peeps on twitter. One of the people I talked too was Laurie McLean's assistant, who I've spoken to before and is very nice and adorable.
I asked her what her thoughts are on how hard of a sell EF is. I was legit curious and I know her agent reps epic fantasy. Plus, we have had lovely conversations before. She answered back that it would have to be very, very unique now. So I put forth my story, which is an epic fantasy with science fiction elements, dragons as the MCs and doesn't take place in a medieval setting (all of which are true). She asked me if I have queried her agent and I said I have and that I was rejected. Then, she asked me when and I said early Feburary. I wasn't thinking anything of it, simply answering her questions. Then...it happened.
She asked me to do it again.
I HAD to clarify what she meant. Did she mean resend my query?
Yes. She did.
I FLIPPED OUT.
This wonderful and amazing agent assistant gave me a second chance. She said sometimes she rejects queries too quickly and that she wanted to read mine again. She even said she would send my query straight to Laurie. I thanked her profusely and told her I owed her a hug. Thankfully, we are both five feet tall
So, now I am waiting to see what the answer is. Regardless if I get another R, this has enouraged me beyond belief. Maybe my luck is starting to change? Could this mean better things for me are going to happen?
I didn't put this in success stories because I didn't get a full request out of it (yet) or an offer (...yet). I will keep all updated!
Moral of the story: Twitter is awesome and don't count anything out! Strange things can happen at the weirdest of times!
