I got a no today from Angry Robot, for those of you keeping track at home. Still, it was nice to be under consideration at that level.
Remember the contemporary YA I wrote this past summer, Misfits? It's revised now and I sent the first batch of five queries out to agents Friday night. I've already received three responses: two rejections--and a full request. So that's almost made up for my rejection today.
I don't know what I'm going to do with Bell-Men, to be honest. There's one more publisher I can send it to, although I want to revise it again first, but if they say no I'll probably just sit on it for a while. I've almost completed the sequel and I've always planned to make it a trilogy, so maybe I'll just wait until I've finished all three books to my satisfaction. And maybe by then I'll have sold something else and have an agent who can send it out to all those publishers who don't take unagented submissions ever.
