I’ve closed out the remaining queries as no response means no. The agent who asked me to revise and resubmit said, “I think you are headed in the right direction, but I’m going to have to say no.” At this point, I’m putting DEMOLITION on the virtual shelf and maybe one day I’ll pull it back out. Maybe not. With all of the feedback and revisions, I think I’ve lost my MC’s voice and my Antagonist’s voice too. And that’s a necessary ingredient to any well told story.
However, I don’t regret writing it because I’ve learned so many lessons and I’m hoping to incorporate those results into the next manuscript. So, I’ll cross my fingers, start typing, and hope for the best.
