As a vacillate back and forth between becoming an indie rock star writer and a stuffy, crystal palace living, main stream, best selling author – I decided to start looking for literary representation for The G Crisis. I knew when I started that I would get a TON of these. So here is the first of many. No hard feelings (insert black-hearted literary agent name here), I know it was only business, the BUSINESS OF BREAKING MY SOUL!! :p
Here is what they had so say. I’m sure those of you with a few publishing credits under their name are used to this.
Thank you so much for sending the (redacted) your query. We’d like to apologize for the impersonal nature of this standard rejection letter. On average, we receive nearly 500 email query letters a week and despite that, we do read each and every query letter carefully. Unfortunately, this project is not right for us. Because this business is so subjective and opinions vary widely, we recommend that you pursue other agents. After all, it just takes one “yes” to find the right match.
Good luck with all your publishing endeavors. “
Pretty nice all things considered. I’ll keep everyone posted. In the meantime the quest continues and I’m finalizing a Kickstarter campaign for The G Crisis.
