Let Them Eat Cake Rejections


Blagent Janet Reid posted this photo a few months ago.  If all my rejections came as cake, I'd sure be fat.  If you follow the link (cakewreck), you find out it's not really a literary rejection at all, but a resignation.  (Agents are always getting my hopes up with misleading information.) To read the actually letter, go here.

it is incredible to me that janet reid she has any time to be an agent. how many blogs does she run? four? five? and we all know she was miss snark. i guess her clients must be happy, but sheesh, crazy.

She wasn't Miss Snark.

I'm convinced "Miss" Snark is a dude. Maybe an assistant, or a live-in boy toy of a super-star agent who just had loads of free time and an in with NY lit agents.

It reads just like a guy doing an impression of a prim, unmarried, upperclass female living in NY. All those references to some hot actor (George Clooney I think?), shoes, drinks...somebody just recapped Sex/City episodes as blog entries.

Hmm, I always pictured Reid as more manly-looking than that.
