Second Response: Quick and Painless

29 May

Well, that was probably just about as fast as I imagine a query can die. It took less time for this agent to turn me down than it did for me to research their particular interests and preferences. Even so, this just means I’m on to the next one.

(15 minutes from query sent to query killed)

    Dude – I think your query just got a Brazilian.

      I was thinking execution, but yeah – that works too.

    This happened to me once… it was the first query I’ve ever sent, and I got the rejection in nine minutes. Needless to say, my inexperienced self was crushed, haha.

      Your first one? There should be a law.

      Luckily this is my second time sending out queries. The first time around I got a couple of good bites, but in the end my fantasy manuscript just needs more work. That experience really set me up to take these hits without letting it get to me.
