Rejection.
That ever present vulture has once again ripped out my heart with its bloody beak.
The slip read,
"We are sorry to inform you of the death of your literary aspirations and dreams.
Best wishes, The Satanic Sacrifice Literary Agency".
Well, back to the drawing board...

Stop it right there!!!!
How many rejections have I had? It's just par for the course. They are so gonna beat themselves up when you suceed I promise you.
I've got the offer of a Lit. Agent that could possibly rip me off. So how bad is that.
My guys don't feel scam but they're not infallible. At least I can do it for 6 months only if I wish. My last contract was for a year! With this new contract we can "fire" one another if the goods don't come up.
Going to seek advice when Bank holiday is over. Will let you know.

Mate........Well I look a bit of a chav in overalls or boiler suit. The white or yellow helmet looks cute though :-)

Chin up Frank Delaney will be a blockbuster. We'll blast the American Government wide open. Tom Hanks or some new up and coming starlet can play the lead in the film.
We will both be very wealthy...ha ha ha

Well Tee, if you feel good about it then go for it.
As I said, P&E is a good guide but it's all on what you feel comfortable with, right? Especially with your abilities.
I also think that P&E looks at what the agency can deliver, I don't actually think they're gonna rip you off.
B.T.W I've written a covering letter to an agency and am changing my synopsis to suit their needs right now.
Nil desperandum, right?

.........AND ANOTHER THING ^.^ ^.^

Your glass is half full remember???

You have also completed a book.
You have an outline for another. We also have another one on the go between us.

Also remember my books are aimed at young adults.
You have completed adult reading material. I don't know if I have the talent for that. Frank Delaney aside as he crept up on me when I wasn't looking.
Ok backing off now...

I was posting a reply as your reply came up. It went
.....AND ANOTHER THING ^.^

I cant remember any more of it, but in reply to your post.
Glad to hear you're more up beat.
My synopsis I did for you was only a guide. Agents are all different so give them what they want. What is right for one is wrong in anothers eyes right?
If you can make sense of that rubbish....larfs.
Sometimes we just have to take chances and put out a bit of faith. So it smacks us in the mouth - but other times it works.
Nil Desperandum yes.
Backing off now.
