I got a doozy of a rejection on Beneath the Surface yesterday. I'd finalled in Contest Junkies with BtS in 2005 and had a request from Berkley. It took me more than a year to convince my agent to send it, and in February she said we had interest, but she sent me the R yesterday. My suspense plot wasn't strong enough. Sigh. I guess that's not totally unexpected, but since I'd had interest from them....

It doesn't help that we've had like five minutes of sunshine since before my birthday, and today is the Gilmore Girls episode where it all goes bad for Luke and Lorelei (yes, I identify WAY too much with this show) but now I have, I think, one submission out.

At least at school things are good, and I've gotten 2 of the 4 gifts I need for the month!

And, Supernatural's on tonight.

It's hard not to take rejections personally, but they certainly aren't meant that way.

Hang in there. You'll find a home for your writing -- you must be doing something right! Look at all those contest finals.

Hope the sun comes out for you soon. Gray skies never help a mood.

Poo on the rejection. They don't know what they're missing. That book rocks.

Toni Anderson said...

Hugs Mary. It'll come.

I'm sorry, Mary! That stinks.

I have faith that your explosion of success is right around the corner. Not that my faith means anything, but still. LOL

Tonight's Supernatural hopefully improved your mood a little bit. Or at least made you cry it out.

Thanks, Marianne, Mary Beth, Trish, Toni and Natalie! We did have some sun yesterday, and that helped.
