Here is the link to a video of Megan's panel in Australia with Jo Nesbo.
Next Monday, FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE. A story set at a zoo. Mine needs to go past my reading group.
Let me know.
Best Rejection Letter This Time Around.
From a well-known agent:
Dear Ms. Abbott
I have read the chapters you sent me from SHOT IN DETROIT and although I enjoyed what I read, my enjoyment was not enough to read more.....
Really wouldn't you think an agent might have a better way of rejecting a ms. after years of doing it. Wouldn't he/she have a standard rejection letter that was kind but firm. I really resent the flippant attitude of this one, in particular.
Dear Ms. Abbott:
I enjoyed what I read of SHOT IN DETROIT. Unfortunately I find myself unable to represent it.
Or something like that. You have to wonder if some agents have a streak of masochism in them.
What's the worst one you've received? Or better yet, do you know an agent looking for clients?
