you call that rejection?

And the madness continues...

So since I last updated you on the craziness that is my life, I've gotten another request from an agent. For the full book this time, not just a few chapters. She apparently loved the sample chapters I'd already sent her and wanted more. This is always good. So that makes four agents saying yes to reading my book. That's four steps closer to success.

But like I said before, rejection is part of the game, and I did get a rejection letter tonight. It was easily the nicest,  most complimentary rejection letter I have EVER gotten. I mean, I'm considering framing it. Seriously. The agent said she wouldn't be comfortable marketing the book due to the sexy scenes, but asked if I would please contact her when it was published so she could buy a copy and read it herself. She loved my synopsis, and my sample chapter, and I guess, me. And they call that rejection? Seriously, I wouldn't mind a few more like that. I mean, if the odds say I have to have a percentage of these come back as no, I may as well enjoy them, right?

I'm telling you, this is the most bizarre turn of events in my quest to be popular and loved by all. A daunting task, but if things keep going this way, I might actually get there eventually.

Until then...I'll be watching my email with a little grin and a lot of hope.
