Story Update

Hello! I've got some maybe exciting news and some disappointing news. First off, the not so good news. I've received nine rejections out of the twenty letters I sent. One person said my story was "interesting" but they didn't love it. Others sent the more generic, thanks but no thanks.

I can't really say I blame them. Despite the fact that I had three people read my first chapter as well as reading it a good twenty times myself, I found two really noticeable grammar errors in it today. And this is the chapter I sent out to a lot of them. Then I went back and looked at some of the query emails I sent out and noticed the font was messed up in quite a few of them. Between that and the grammar errors, it just didn't look professional. *sigh*

But onto the good news. I decided to not limit myself to just agents this time around so I sent out a query letter to a small publisher, and I got a response back today requesting more material! I'll keep you posted!
