Rejection #41 (or thereabouts. I'm losing track. They're all starting to blur together in a big jumble of misery. Sort of like high school.)


Thank you for your query. Although your story sounds interesting, I'm not looking for debut fiction at this time.

I appreciate you thinking of (redacted) and me and I wish you luck with your literary pursuits.

The fact that she states she's not looking for debut fiction softens the blow.
This may just be her form, I don't really know.
Anyways, I so love the words "debut fiction" in reference to myself.
It makes it sound sort of awesome.
Anyways, that's all for today.
Have a good weekend.

I'm sorry.

I'm afraid with the dismal state of publishing there are a lot of agents who are not looking for debut fiction. But they just don't realize, we are not just debut authors, we are AWESOME debut authors. I guess that makes us awesome debutantes. I like that. Let's make a club.

Keep pushing. It will come.
