First partial request

I swear, some agents have a word filter running on their slush pile, which automatically sends a rejection to any query containing the word “vampire”.

After three form rejections (and goddamn, they arrived quickly) and some modification to the query, I got a request for a partial yesterday. Trying not to get excited or anything, but its a good start. At least I know the query letter isn’t complete dross now.

Seems that the old “zig when the others zag” rule applies in the publishing world like everywhere else. So, after some quick editing I’ve sent off the first 50 pages and now await the agent’s response, trying not to get too worked up (which is, of course, fucking impossible). So if you happen to bump into me over the next few days,Β  I assure you that underneath my poker face I’m as nervous as the first space monkey.

Poor space monkeys 😦
