I thought I was well-prepared for the eventual rejections that I would receive from publishers and literary agents. Well, I still think I am, but to get two rejections in two days was a bit tough. Especially the last one that came today. The agency's website says it take +/- 8 weeks for a reply and I got a reply in less than 48 hours after submission. So, I'm wondering now: did that guy actually read my query, or does he just send automated rejection responses out if he doesn't like the title of a book/manuscript?
This might sound a bit bitter, so early in the game, but can anyone blame me?
Then again, I found this wonderful image and I will cling to this for a while.
