Rejection on a Partial Today...

Which is a little disappointing, for sure. But in her big, long email, she did bring up one issue I think might be a genuine concern: the manuscript may need to be "Americanized." I mean, it's pretty obvious that I'm Canadian. Besides just using British spelling, there may be other subtle grammar issues.

If the other agents who have the manuscript bring it up, as well, I'll have to do a substantial revision for this. /Sigh.

Let's hope for better news on my other submissions!


  1. Aw rats :( That stinks. But hey, always remember you got a REQUEST! That's got to mean you're doin' something right :) Can't wait to see where your querying process takes you; I'm starting mine soon too (eek!) You're going to do awesome, good luck!!

  2. Thank you so much :D Yeah, I'm feeling all right about the process so far. I feel pretty lucky with the attention from agents I've gotten, and hey, it's only the beginning! Good luck to you with your querying, keep me posted!

  3. Aw damn! That sucks, but I agree with KT. You got a request so you are definately on the right path!
