I spent hours yesterday writing a Query letter to email to the agent who seemed most likely (according to the book.) Typed out the whole synopsis, took a deep breath and hit SEND. (They don’t accept paper submissions.) It immediately said “Your email has failed permanently.” No explanation, nothing. I was crushed! I don’t know what to do with this book. It’s my 3rd, my 2nd novel, and I’ve worked on it over 20 years off and on. I thought I had it right but now I wonder. That door was shut SLAM. Maybe the book is not right yet. I have doubts. I know I could try another agent right away, but now I have these doubts. There are parts of the novel that are so good I ask myself “Who wrote this??” But other parts I feel are weak, yet necessary. I am going to put it on the back burner til I know what to do. Thanks for listening. I was really really DOWN last night. Better today. I’m not going to let a novel steal my joy in life and in my Savior. Mother Teresa said, “Don’t let anything so sadden you that you forget the joy of Christ Risen.” Excellent advice! Beautiful lady.
