First Rejection of 2011

It only took a week from the moment of query to the moment of rejection. *sigh*

While I’m bummed out as I really would love to work with this agent, I’m going to keep on keepin’ on and see what happens next. I think my next stop will be Barnes and Noble where I’ll pick up the 2011 Publishers Marketplace book and start digging through it for leads on agents to query.

Then again, the Pikes Peak Writers Conference registration opens up tomorrow. I’ll definitely check out the list of agents that will be there and see if I can land a pitch appointment or two.


First Query of 2011

I just sent out my first query of 2011. The agent’s web site states that there is about a four week delay in hearing back. At least I know I’ll hear back from this one instead of having it “black hole” into nothingness. That’s reassuring. I hope that answer is a “yes” and not a “no,” but we’ll see how things go.

Wish me luck!
