Nice Rejection Letter
I received a rejection letter from Mary Kole at Andrea Brown Literary Agency today and I wanted to acknowledge how much her words of encouragement meant. The publishing industry is a hard winding road in the midst of a jungle with many blind corners. You walk the path, but the only compass you possess are the trails you have forged and the directions given by the occupants. Mary's letter was an important gauge and I am so thankful she took the time out of her busy schedule to write me. Because of her thoughtfulness, I know that Copper Descent is ready for me to actively pursue publication. I will send out four more queries this week and continue to do so until I find the right publisher. This is going to happen, my friends. Maybe not tomorrow or even next month, but I just had a prominent agent with a masters degree say that I have skills! How can I not be bubbling over with enthusiasm?
