I promise I update that a lot more than this site...


This is a very frustrating journey.  I feel like these agents consider themselves some sort of rock star.  For one, I don't believe any of them really read query letters.  I could be wrong, and I hope I am but if you try to ask them any other question they just ignore you.

Edit - Edit - Edit

After receiving a few more rejections, I finally am getting back some critiques.  I can honestly say I see why I am getting rejected so much.  Only one way to fix this is to edit.

Rejection Status

Currently I am up to 8 rejections - - -

This is definitely a frustrating process. I know know that there is something I am doing wrong, so I am taking a week break from submitting query letters and fixing this.  Stay Tuned

Contest Details

This would be the best opportunity for me, simply because currently I am querying for my novel and not getting too much positive feedback. I would love to know what exactly I am doing wrong. If maybe I am taking the wrong approach, or missing a few key factors? I am a new author and just now learning the ropes. I need all the help I can get and this really would be like visiting Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, for me, at least during this period of my career.

Inside Purgatory - A Quote From "The Pope"

“Why do you two think that you can recycle souls and simply place them in new bodies dispersed throughout this world, with no issues at all? They are exhausted and they want their rest Jesus! Even without me, you cannot wash away a soul’s sins and expect them to be purified again. Even I know that. Souls aren’t Gods, neither directly or indirectly. They aren’t supposed to live forever, whether you want to disguise their previous lives by giving them a new host or not. One of these days your whole system is going to fail right beneath your eyes.” - "Pope Benedict"
