I got a rejection on a query (with sample pages) this morning.
So I sent out another.
I got rejection on that query plus pages.
So I sent out one more (with synopsis plus ten pages per the agent's guidelines).
Keeping on trucking. That's me. But what a cruel effing day, you know?
Then I got this note back on that last one:
That was great, Mindi. You nailed the teen voice perfectly. Please mail the entire manuscript for my consideration.
I'm feeling much better now. What a difference those three sentences made!
