Well, I can't say I'm surprised. It would have been an impossible dream to have had my first novel picked up for representation by the first agents I sent a query letter to. So I now am the proud possessor of two form letter rejections. One from an agent not taking on new clients right now, the other a polite but firm 'sorry, we're very selective and we're not selecting you'.
Ah well. As I said, not surprised, but certainly disappointed. Two query letters are still out, awaiting a response. Plan B: continue to send query letters out on "Wings of Winter" and continue to write "MindBlind."
Status check on "MindBlind": 11K and counting.
