I just sent out the first five queries for The Cherubim. Feeling pretty ill. I've worked so hard on this, and I know that the way things go, there will be a bunch of rejections coming in soon. Still, without query letters, nothing would get published, right?


  1. But I like you! And I never send you rejection letters. So that counts for something.

  2. Yes, expect rejections. If you view it as part of the process, it's a lot easier to take. After ten rejections with no requests, though, stop and revamp your query letter. Then send out five more.
    Good luck!


  3. Great, GREAT suggestion. Thank you, Liz! After three in two days, I just froze up. Still need to send out a few more to make it an even ten and then wait for the rest to come back in :-)
