Yesterday, I received my very first rejection letter. I handled it well, surprisingly. The letter itself was short and kind. That is what made it easier for me to not be too disappointed.
I’m kind of nervous this will start a serial trend of rejection letters. Considering the fact that I sent two different picture book manuscripts to multiple publishing houses. All hope is not lost though. I got six more letters to go.
On the bright side, I leaned what not to do.
read the instructions clearly for each manuscript
Make your cover letter quirky and real
& most of all don’t oversell it or do the opposite and under sell it
