So, after Monday’s post I can honestly say I will never ever read material that is already out with an agent.
Before I send it?- Yes!
After I receive a rejection?- Absofrickin’lutely!
But never ever while it’s already out there and there’s nothing I can do to change it. There’s no reason to put myself through the torture. Thank you all for your kind comments and advice! Glad to know I’m not the only one.
Still no word from the agents but I have been in this situation before, of course, with another book. And at the time, the agents both sent very kind letters.
They say a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down. But Pass Letters are kind of like poison. No amount of sweetness can counteract the fact that they kill your soul a little. I’m really not looking forward to going through that again. Which is why I was completely inspired by Rachelle Gardner’s post this morning about Pass Letters. She features a whole bunch of quotes from pass letters sent out by agents and editors for books that eventually went on to sell with publishers!
This couldn’t have come at a better time for me so THANK YOU GoodAgent Rachelle!
Do YOU recognize any of those pass reasons? I know I’ve seen at least one or two in my past pass letters. Still stings:)
