rejection from an Agent
These people represent Bill Bryson one of my laugh out loud favorites. So I thought as Literary License was a humorous novel I might have a chance. Not so this time.
Here is there very nice rejection.
but here first are their submission guidelines if you want to try your luck although they say luck has nothing to do with it and talent has everything.
If you would like to send in your work to be read by Greene & Heaton, please make sure you include the following: a covering letter, a synopsis, and three chapters (or about fifty pages if that`s easier). Please make sure that you give us your email address, or include a return envelope and sufficient postage if you want the material back.
Please note that we don't represent original scripts for theatre, film or television.
We try to respond within six weeks of receipt of your material, but please appreciate that this isn't always possible. It is unlikely that you will receive detailed criticism of your work unless we are interested in representing it, but it will be read, and we always aim to give you a response.
