All-American Reject

There is one word that explains why women don't like to ask men out first. REJECTION. Women have to have the babies, men should at least have to deal with the rejection.

I've gotten more than my fair share for this book. See the latest letter

Thank you so much for sending the "N" Agency sample pages of THE LIST.

After a careful reading, we are sorry to say that we don't believe that we are the right agency for you.

You deserve an enthusiastic representative, so we recommend that you pursue other agents. After all, it just takes one "yes" and with so many different opinions out there, you could easily find the right match.

CRAP! I don't know what to do now. I have gotten some good feedback on the idea of the book. Do I send it out to the second list of agents? Do I rework this book and resend it to the original agents? How do I write that query letter? Or do I just give up on this book and hope I can write another one? Argh!

I was thinking about posting it chapter by chapter on my blog, getting feedback from you guys. But I want to maintain the copyrights. I don't want someone to steal the idea. Sigh.

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.
