EZ Rejection Form Generator

Under the list of 'Things I'm Doing When I Should be Writing/Designing" comes a fun lil link I saw over at LROD (Literary Rejections on Display-great blog, btw) for the EZ Rejection Form Letter for Writers:
Literary Agent Version
.

From the site:

With the publishing industry awash in manuscripts from enthusiastic would-be novelists, literary agents are having a hard time keeping up. Lately, even the best agencies are resorting to random (see if you can find it in the mailbox) postcard rejection notices, and squint-to-read rejection slips mass produced from toner-depleted copiers.

Writers, you can help! With your next novel submission, encourage the agent to fill out this handy EZ Rejection Form Letter. It’ll save the second assistants some time, and give you the most detailed rejection letter you probably ever got. :)

Anna Richenda created this and it's too funny (if not true on some points LOL). I tried one out and here's what I got. (I hope she adds more choices for the future hehe)

Dear Writer:

Enclosed please find your pristine, unread manuscript.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider your manuscript, but I am unable to offer you representation --ever-- because, though I loved your novel, frankly, at this point, I'm too busy to know if I really loved it or if I've started to hallucinate.

Another reason I must decline to represent you is that your manuscript isn't a variation on some existing bestseller. Can you write a cute animal mystery, please? I'm freaking out, here. In addition, this work really sucks.

A few words of advice. Please don't contact me again until you have a ready platform. So what if your book is great? Frankly, publishers won't pay to promote it unless you're famous. And right now, nobody cares one whit about you. In closing, I wish you luck in placing your manuscript elsewhere--Snerk!

The very warmest of regards,

Gifford Regnal-Symes
Mailroom Assistant Trainee.

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R



Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
