    Just checked out one of Erica Verillo's wonderful blog updates of agents seeking writers. Every single agent that even vaguely fit my genres has rejected me in the past. I am literally running out of agents on this planet that have not turned me down before. :(

    Just found another ezine to submit to. I was excited until I read in their guidelines they specifically want a bio with publishing credits. I'm still going to submit, even though I know having zero credits means an automatic pass.

    Something's been bothering me, Colonists. My main MS, which I've been shopping around for years now, features a number of unpleasant creatures (seeing as it's Urban Fantasy about monster hunters). This includes vampires, both in the cold open first chapters and as villains later on. My worry...

    Just got a form rejection email from a publisher whose stated "If you haven't heard from us by XX-XX-XXXX we're not interested" date was in MAY. The publishing industry is just trolling me at this point.
