I've been looking up lists of agents for children's books and writing a nice query letter along with a few pages of The Adventures of Octopus and Octopie. Got a lot more responses than I thought I would. Unfortunately they are all REJECTION letters, but at least they responded. Some even said, "Don't give up, it's just not my genre". I need to find out how many time J.K. Rowling was rejected before someone took a chance on Harry Potter's first book. OK, I just googled and Ms. Rowling said she had "loads" of rejections and they weren't nice. When I emailed Rich and to him I was getting quite a few rejection letters, but most nice, he sent this back in response, :) Rich is a man of few words, but I took that as encouragement.
I think I'll run a tally on my own website, www.lottiekateminick.com
of how many rejection letters I get. Then I won't be depressed I'll
just feel like I have new pen pals who won't ever write to me again.
Sounds like a plan.
