    Vandal,

    I quadruple what the others said. Bless your heart. It's just not right, and you deserve someone who is crazy about your writing!!!

    Indeed, Vandal. Unless this guy is having some serious personal crisis...was that you whose agent was having a real problem or someone else on AW? But come on, Agent Dude! I'd have to question his time management skills, if nothing else here!

    ((((Vandal))))) This is a bit ridiculous and surreal.

    Well, I will not be joining the rest of you on sub again anytime soon. My agent has deemed my book unworthy.

    Bummer, Kellion. Did your agent give any particular feedback? Is he/she open to revisions?

    Whatever the case, I hope you're back in it soon, and stronger than ever.

    Kendare, this was intended to be a between-rounds submission. We have revised at least five times together so this is the end of the road.

    Hello! Been a while since I stopped in!

    Congrats to Suki and Blonde on the pending good news!

    Kellion, I feel your pain - mine was deemed unworthy as well, so on to the next.

    Finished up revisions from editor suggestions and hopefully my agent will like what I've done and get the resubs in there soon. Looks like things are picking up in editor land!

    Wow, Kellion. This sounds surreal too. Isn't this the book that your agent fell in love with, signed you up for, shopped (somewhat), revised with you, and suddenly the verdict is that it is not worthy? How could that be and how could they know?

    Do you agree with this assessment? Would you be open to looking for another agent who might feel otherwise about this book?

    I am so sorry you are going through this.

    Wow, lots of stuff going on, both good and bad...really quickly:

    HUGE YAY for both suki and blond!!! Can't wait for your official announcements!

    ((Kellion)) - I'm so sorry, it must be really hard to hear that about a book you've worked so hard on.

    ((Vandal)) - Oh no, how frustrating! That agent had better call you on Fri...or as others are saying, maybe it's time to find a more reliable agent.

    Hugs to everyone who's gotten R's, and good luck to all working on revisions or waiting for feedback.

    Books get trunked. I get that. I just didn't expect it yet. All I can do is write the next one.

    Shinta and Blond, I can't wait for details!

    Vandal, I'm so sorry you're going through more of the same kind of frustration.

    Kellion, that just plain stinks. Just remember trunks can be opened, when the time is right. The next novel might pave the way for the first one in the end.

    A prominent blogger emailed me today to let me know my author blog was ugly and boring. I took this advice seriously, so I just spent four hours doing a full cosmetic upgrade on it. I have been informed I should have a photo of myself and a more visually interesting layout.

    I made a new header graphic, tweaked the layout and added images to my old posts. Also, I colored it red, which supposedly makes it go faster.

    Now it looks like a 15 year-old girl's MySpace page.

    My work is complete. (I'm actually pretty pleased with myself)
