Just got a rejection letter from an agent who thanked me for "letting them take a look." This was an agent whose submission guidelines only asked for a query, not any part of the MS.
Even their form rejections are becoming less considerate. >.>
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. :(
I ran across the author of this on Twitter, and after binging through the entire archives I'm sharing it everywhere I can: Cross, Massachusetts
If you are any kind of fan of Horror or Weird Fiction, you *owe* it to yourself to check these creepy, engaging and well-written vignettes out!
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.
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.
