Good people of Ricochet, please celebrate with me – I just got my first literary rejection!
Last April, I fulfilled a life-long dream and self-published my first book (I wrote about it here). In the following months, I finished up another project, and I decided that this time I would like to try the traditional route.
In February, I bit the bullet and sent my first query letter off, and thankfully I sent it to an agent who replies very quickly, so I had my answer in about a week. I expected to be rejected, and honestly consider it kind of a “right of passage.” Now that I’ve sent one query letter and received one rejection, as Michael Scott said, “I am ready to get hurt again!”
If you’re a believer in Christ, I would love to have your prayers – that I would persevere, respond correctly to criticism, and ultimately find the right agent and publisher if that is God’s will! I’m excited to continue my journey of being a writer.Published in
