The Journey Begins for “Journey”

I bit the bullet and started searching for an agent for Sentimental Journey.

Having done all my research previously and compiled an optimistic twenty selections to start with, I sent the first one out yesterday. And ten hours later received my first rejection. It “does not seem right for our list,” said the message from the agent’s assistant. I really had done my homework, and thought it was similar to other books they’ve represented. But what do I know? Here we go again.

So this morning I sent email queries to the next five agents on my list, varying contents from just the letter, to five pages, synopsis for two, and one requesting synopsis plus 3 chapters, depending on what their website specified.

Time will tell how long before I collect additional rejections. No, scratch that – too negative. As Liza Minelli sings, “Maybe this time, I’ll be lucky….”

    Don’t be discouraged if you get deluged with R’s. My human is a writer, been at it 17 years, has enough rejections to paper a house with, and has just recently began to get published. Endeavor to persevere!
