It's not a newsflash that my attempts in becoming conventionally published were...well...abysmal. I think I sent less than a hundred queries, and didn't receive a single nibble, bite or whatever you might call an encouraging response.
On June first I self-published and never looked back, honestly. So I have to laugh when I get a rejection email, some EIGHT MONTHS after I sent it telling me (can you guess?) "it's not the right fit for him/her".
Shocker let me tell you.
And it's not like I'm having the last laugh or anything...really. But I have managed to get 1,383 copies downloaded so far!
And I really REALLY don't miss those awful rejection emails.
