A Dove Gray Disappointment
I received a rejection from the wonderful Nelson Literary Agency for my partial of Masks. I'm disappointed, but also I'm aware that they have to be very, very selective. They get so many queries, so many partials, so many manuscripts that if I was asked for a full manuscript I'd be very, very surprised (and delighted!) They reminded me in the rejection that these things are subjective, and after Nathan's contest I can agree heartily. I'm not taking it personally. But the stars that danced in my eyes the past few days have fallen to earth. Time to start my weekly query schedule again. Hopefully I'll be looking at stars again soon!
