I've seen this article by Chuck Sambuchino before, but I thought that it might be of solace to those Colonists who have been putting themselves through the submission process.

It's easy to wonder whether literary agents are even human, as you fire off one query after another, hearing only deafening silence in return. Read these 13 things about them though, and you'll come to appreciate that they're actually warm, cuddly creatures with feelings too - though that he chose 13 things feels a bit loaded to me.

Actually I added up the numbers on my third novel, which I've given up on for the time being. 62 rejections and 69 no replies. As they say, you just have to keep on keeping on! ;)
