I've been around for few years and I've recieved my share of rejection letters.
I'm no longer bothered by form rejections. Not at all. I have a great critique group that gives me wonderful feedback so I know I don't completely suck. And I"ve sold three books.
But why does an agent think they can reject me then try to sell me something?
This is the first time I received a rejection and a list of books to read. This one was a color brochure about a book the agent wrote. That takes gaul. That's all I can say. And no I'm not naming names. Way too small a business for that and I am so much bigger than that.
Have you ever had an agent try to sell you his book after rejecting you?
