Another week, another (very polite and kindly worded) rejection. So that’s 3/5 rejections so far for the first round of submissions to agents for my first novel, Art and Soul, which I sent out at the end of May. The positive way to view this? There are two who haven’t rejected my submission yet! 🙂

Writing update and JuNoWriMo 2015

Last week I finally submitted sample chapters of my contemporary romance novel, Art and Soul, to some literary agents. AND the dreaded synopsis and covering letters.

Eek!

So, from everything I have read from other writers, I believe I now have six-eight weeks to wait before receiving my first round of rejections! Can’t wait!
