Stats for Week One:
Queries Sent: 8
Queries Responses: 3
Queries Rejected: 2
Agent Referrals: 1
I was a little shocked that within a week I heard back from three agencies, including an agent referral. With three responses all but one was a rejection form letter.
These are both good and bad. Good because they're efficient and I can easily move on.
Bad because I have no feedback other than, "thanks but no thanks."
If the rejections keep piling in (and hearing nothing is a rejection as well, not every agency replies) then I'll need to tweak the pitch.
Stay tuned, the Rejection Project is just getting started!
