See...

...it can be done.

Another rejection today (they are coming in thick and fast).

But this one one was printed with my name handwritten in at the top (and spelled correctly) and an apology for it being a standard rejection.

It will have taken that agency no longer to produce than an illegible scrawl, yet it showed a level of courtesy that helps soften the blow (although I had no real expectation that this particular agency would take me on, but you don't know until you try - and I'm nothing if I'm not trying).

Third time lucky??

I wish. I'm well past the third one.

Difficult to ask, but have you sent your book to any American companies?

Graeme K Talboys said...

I haven't, as yet. I'll be giving the UK end of things a couple more months and then I'll get myself a copy of Writer's Market and start approaching US agents and publishers.
