So let it be written, so let it be done.
Pleased as punch to announce that I’m now officially repped by gentleman and scholar Matt Bialer at Sanford J. Greenburger and Associates. FUCK and YES.
I can still remember the nut-punch of my first form rejection, the high of my first partial request. I remember sitting at my keyboard trying to write a query letter on COLD and not having the first clue how to begin. I remember feeling stupid, that all this was a waste of time, just an absurd little dream. I remember the first time I wrote something that made the hairs on my arms stand up, and feeling like I could actually do this. It’s been a trip. Not at the end yet by a long shot, but the first leg is done.
All of the agents who made offers (and others who were about to before I pulled the rug out) were amazing, dedicated and wonderful people. I actually felt quite bad letting them down. You’d think after nearly a year of constant rejection, a bastard like me might get some satisfaction in doing some rejecting of my own. Instead I felt like a complete prick. But still, time to get over it.
Now, bring on the revisions!
