Well, all writers get them…
Have just received a rejection from the first agent book was submitted to. Here it is:
Thank you for sending me The Orchestrator and for giving me the opportunity
to consider your work.
I have read your material, but I did not feel it would be right for my list
and therefore I am unable to offer you representation.
I am sorry not to be writing with better news, but I hope this response will
not discourage you. I wish you all the best with your writing.
Being glass half full: a) nice answer within five weeks and b) looks like they read it all so the synopsis must be good enough because I’ve had others that stopped there before the rewrite.
Nose to grindstone once more.
