TRINITY, an urban fantasy query

I began querying on May 18th 2010. Within three days I had a request for a full and a week after that, another request for a full and a partial. Since then, it's been nothing but rejections and this week, my full and partial were both rejected (with some feedback). Even though I still have a full ou...

Re: Ask Nathan

3) This is really a matter of curiosity. But they say there's no such thing as a stupid question. Do you think more agents handle rejections via a form or no response whatsoever? I'd say it's split 25% no response/75% form rejection according to my stats and other's I've seen. QueryTracker can prov...

She has an amazing voice and got her first pub deal at seventeen... quite impressive. She ...

Re: Do you have a new blog post?

Will the supposed e-book and self-publishing revolution give rise to a new kind of Nazism in a world where customers get exposed to the slush pile and reviews are so easily manipulated? Who will guide the buyer's hand to an honest and good purchase? http://blog.franciscossette.com/2010/06/unagented-...

Re: Rejection Stats

Rejections on a full AND a partial today. And the full rejection was form. I'm starting to think that this book just isn't going to happen. Jesus Christ, if this happened to me I'd find ways to acquire the world's finest medical grade marijuana you can supposedly find where I live... I find it slig...

Re: Rejection Stats

Began querying a month ago today, so I thought I'd update my stats: 37 Sent 22 Still Out 1 Partial Requests 2 Full Requests 10 Rejections 2 Closed / No Response June has been a slow month so far. Good weather and conferences are probably slowing down response times, but that's ok, I'm enjoying the s...

Re: Rejection Stats

This thread is a huge comfort to me, so i'm jumping in. Queries sent out:15 Requests for partial:0 Requests for full:0 Rejections: 4, two personalized-one with a request to send other work, two no-responses in alloted time. It's still early in the game, right? I'm trying to focus on my other WIP's ...
