Wow - lots to catch up on...


Sorry to hear about the rejections Lannie and David. I got one today too. Bummer all around...


Dan and GG, YES, we are all swimming together. I have a full out to Trident and Artists Literary. Here's hoping one of us hears something soon!

So now we're back to:

Boy, a spate of rejections for Monday. Sorry to hear it.

For some reason it never gets easier to absorb that bad news. You tell yourself you can handle it, but paraphrasing Lannie, "hope springs internal." Always a good idea to shoot the next query out on the same day.

I once had a hugely surprising rejection come on the day after Thanksgiving. That one hit like an anvil falling out of the sky, lemme tell ya.

Anyway, back on that horse everyone. And Jess and GG, good luck to both of you.

JW... DON'T WORRY!!!  Agents have a quota to meet...your representation-almost-to-be means we all have to accept the reject quota.  Hey what are friends for?  You go get 'em so we can get someone else in the hot seat!

First of all, Lannie, you also have my sympathy & all that.  Onward & upward to all in the Request Log thread!

Second of all...

but at least Audal FINALLY deep-sixed his ghastly Red Sox avatar and replaced it with a cute redhead. How great is that??  :up:
