The Caren Johnson Literary Agency passed on the pitch I submitted for Uncommon Ground.
And I’m elated. I’ve been hiding for months, not doing anything with my book. I finally had the courage to put myself out there and was rejected. Now that I’ve got my first one out of the way and I don’t appear to be leaking any fluids (also note my heart did not crack in half and I still have use of all my faculties) I can move forward. I will be brave (mostly) and aggressive (when I can). I will get to know Rosie and Elton again. Remember why I love them, and make them the best mostly fictional characters they can be!
Thank you Caren Johnson. You were my first, and you’ll always have a special place in my heart.
