Another Agent wants more, too!  Reply with quote  

I've come to expect rejection so much (and it does get old) that I kind of stopped sending out queries. I mean, I know my book is good, but I also know it's a HUGE longshot.

Anyway, I got another request for more material and it's just super exciting. It means there's a chance ... there's hope. It's so much less final than a rejection. Which, incidentally, I've probably send out 30 queries total. I've maybe received 12 rejections, and 2 requests for more, so my percentage is really not too bad. I'm kind of a pussy ... Jeez.

Excuse me, Knikki, but:

Crap!

You're making steady progress on both producing and selling the novel. That puts you ahead of 90% of the writer wannabes in the world. And you're getting positive responses, which probably disposes of 90% of the rest. If that's what it means to be 'kind of a pussy,' then the world needs a lot more pussies. Onward!

That's terrific! Much better odds than I experienced with my first book.
