In this business of trying to sell your story the thing you have to keep in mind is that it just takes one.
One person in a position of power (i.e. publisher or editor) who likes your work and believes in it. That’s all.
And that’s what I have to remind myself when I receive another no.
I’ve sent out around thirty queries and received back nine no’s and two requests for partials. The no’s I forget – I let them go, obviously the agent wasn’t a match for me. The partials thrill me! But then I got one back today in which the agent felt it wasn’t a fit for them. It was rather frustrating. But you only want an agent who loves your work!
