Welcome to another Stop & Chat my dears! Today we’re going to have a little talk about…
So how often has this happened to you. You have a new contact at “X” publisher, and they send you an email. Before you even read the email you’re all excited just thinking about all the possibilities. Will it be the new fantasy book you’ve been itching for? Maybe that awesome sounding dystopian? Whatever it is you’re honored and positive it will be awesome.
But then you read the email and see it’s not the crazy cool sounding paranormal or completely adorable contemporary. It’s some book you’ve never heard of, have absolutely NO interest in and are now staring at and thinking “what is this nonsense?!”.
Now you have to send that super awkward “thanks but no thanks” email! Or, if you’re horrible like me, you pretend it doesn’t exist and don’t reply at all. O__O
Have you had any ”thanks but no thanks” emails lately? How do you handle them?
