Do you know how it feels to be rejected by a literary agent? Most authors have experienced this. We all try to follow the same guidelines for submitting the perfect query, but sometimes, no matter how hard you try, there's still a couple things in your submission that cause the agent to immediately click the delete button. So instead of posting another article on how to grab the agent's attention, why don't we follow the example from the movie "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" and write an article on how to lose the agent's attention?
If you have a story you'd like to share on how you've lost an agent's interest, or if you'd like to contribute a few of your own writing tips on how to have your query/manuscript rejected, please fill out a short form by clicking here (form closed).
On May 15th, the day before I go to my first writer's conference, I will post the completed article with your writing and follow your blog if I'm not already following.

“You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.”
