It occurred to me last night that maybe writing about my rejections here was not such a good idea. After all, every email I send to agents/editors has my website address on it. They can read everything that you can read, and seeing that others have already rejected a certain piece of work could be prejudicial.
Nonetheless, I’ve decided that I’m going to keep posting honest updates regarding the reactions of those I submit Children of the Resolution to. There are a number of reasons for this, but the principal one is that I feel I owe it to the friends and readers who have supported me through the novel’s development, from conception to completion. Those of you who visit this blog regularly, friends and relative strangers alike, are my potential book buyers. It would be a pretty lousy state of affairs if I didn’t keep you up to speed.
I think any editor/agent worth his/her salt will see the sense of this — especially when they take a look at my visitor stats in the sidebar.
Before signing off, I’d also just like to thank all of you for supporting me. Your friendship, advice and encouragement really does make this so much easier. The faith I have in my work and my ability is largely down to the reactions of people like you. Cheers!
Oh, nearly forgot! I’ve just heard back from Tom at Legend Press. He said Children of the Resolution sounds very interesting and he looks forward to reading it. He now has the full manuscript.
