Received my rejection today with this letter:

Thank you for your submission. I saw something in your writing that I really liked, which is why I requested to see more. However, due to a change in circumstance, I’m going to step aside and encourage you to pursue representation with a different agent. I truly wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors.

sigh and I really was hoping to be her client....Oh well I hope she's okay and things go well with her....on to the next...when will it end ha ha

yeah...I just got into an extended conversation with dlpoet that I forgot where I was....I know...lame excuse...just the truth. Must be living in a fantasy world or something. We writers, huh? Wendy does seem like a great agent. Hope she likes what she reads! :)

dmking22 - Good luck with your book! It is tough sometimes when an agent gives a 'great' rejection. I just got one this minute (now who's diverting from Wendy Schirmer? ha, ha) She said she loved my character and writing but said book wasn't right for the agency.
So, anyway, onward and upward.

Wendy sounds cool. I read her blog last night and wow, she is so nice!
