Alas, the Angel in the Silence short-story collection came back with a rejection letter, as I found out when I returned from KC last night. Was tempted to say, "I drove through a thunderstorm with an ear infection and all I got was this lousy rejection!" But when you say it out loud, it doesn't scan; moreover, it makes no sense. Such is my life.
But she did put a little balloon sticker on the rejection letter, which I liked. That's the first time I'd gotten a sticker on a rejection. Is this the start of a trend?
I'll hit her up with a query for Symphonians next. Or have I already sent Symphonians to her? And if I did, was it the revised version?
Shoot, gotta get a new list of markets to send the collection to. I might try some adult houses and see how that goes. I need to be sending this to agents, too. That way I can avoid all this back-and-forth. I'll just have the agent send me all my rejection letters and I can see if anyone else is putting stickers on theirs.
I should probably get this ear infection looked at. I'll be getting a cortizone shot tomorrow; maybe that'll help clear up these everlasting ear infections by clearing up this everlasting post-nasal drip. I have allergies out the wazoo and sometimes my nose gets so clogged that when I talk I sound like I'm holding my nose, which I am not. And I don't want to go to the MWG conference in that state!
