    Is it worth it to keep pushing a "niche" project?

    So, have had several rejections in the last few days. It's a project which seems mostly horror, and I've been querying under various other genres as far and wide as I can, despite my better judgment. Haven't had too many rejections, 20+, but honestly, a quick survey of the remaining agencies tells me submitting to most of them would be a waste of my time. They just don't seem compatible with my project, tonally, commercially, etc. There are agents that want "genre bending" novels, but honestly, I'm not even sure what they think that means.

    Putting amount of rejections aside, when did you know it was time to shelve your first novel?
