Bah

Well, if'n you check the stats, you'll see the verdict on my outstanding partial is finally in, and it's November Oscar (i.e., No). Bah. I suspect my dissing was part of a general housekeeping but of course there's no way to know that for sure.

  1. Boo. Not as in Halloween-scare. Boo as in - that blows.

  2. I'll take Amber's, "Boo!" And I'll raise it a, "Hiss!" As in--boo hiss! Just remember that there are many people rooting for you:)

  3. That sucks. Did you get any feedback out of it?

    If you have some money, some time, and a passport or enhanced driver's license, you might want to jam up to the Surrey International Writer's Conference. It looked like there were a lot of good agents and editors who were planning to be there. I got 4 requests for my partial at the PNWA conference in Seattle. FOUR!!! That's like, uh, four times as many as I have gotten via the traditional email query route. There's something to be said for face time. Might want to check it out, it's going on now through Sunday afternoon: http://www.siwc.ca/

  4. Thanks, guys. (Gals.) No, Too Cute, no feedback -- just a form. So who knows if she even read more than a page. That's part of the frustration. Bah...

  5. That sucks. Sorry. And on the start of a weekend, too.:(

  6. I'd offer some words of encouragement, like your standard "more fish in the sea", or "when God closes a door, he opens a window", but I don;t think those apply... I say keep querying and re-querying... Best of luck.

  7. Bummerm, man. But, the good news is you still have that full out and beside that you never know what else will come your way. Good luck!
