Boo. That's all. At least I only had to wait a day for it.

Aw, I'm sorry. Send another query out right away!

Sorry you got a rejection. I got one today too, saying I am not the right agent for the book," which made me feel pretty crappy as I translate I am not the right agent as this book stinks.

It's a minor bummer. I figured it was a case of "probably not, but I'd be glad to be wrong."

Don't give up, Lloyd. Go have a nice hot mug of coffee, chocolate or tea (whichever catches your fancy) and send your work out again. We'll be looking forward to the moment it gets accepted.
:e2cheer:

The same goes for you too, Janet.

Geez, what is it about today? I got a "not the right agent, but I'm sure someone else will want it" form letter rejection today, too, also with a tidy 24 hour turn around. (I hate email querying, I really do. :tongue )

Hang in, Lloyd and Janet. Don't translate as "this book sucks" but rather "I am unable to see the greatness in your work because I am too nearsighted".

I'm not upset at all. Besides, I should really be paying attention to the contracts I already have before I worry about finding a home for a book I'm only 1/3 done with.
