Rejection #1: Princess Dreams

Less than 12 hours after submitting my query by email, I had my first rejection!

Dear Amanda:
Thank you for your email.  While your project sounds interesting, I don’t think it is right for my list at this time.

I appreciate your querying us and wish you good luck in finding the right agent who can successfully champion your work.

Pretty awesome. Pretty personal too. She mentions that the project is interesting, but it's not right for her. Sounds good... Let's get this published!
I think of rejection as a process of elimination. Eventually either an agent or publisher will be interested. My job as a writer is to never give up!

Thanks for leaving a message, I love to hear from readers because it puts something real and visible to an otherwise cold "visitor number."
Try to keep it nice though if you have a criticism, make it constructive.
