Letter Two

February 2, 2008

Dear Editor,

I received your rejection letter and am sorry you don't agree that my novel, Are You There, Margaret? It's Me, God... is the searing religious masterpiece of our time. I strongly feel that the pseudosexual communion relationship between young Catholic girls and priests makes for excellent reading, but I understand your need to publish another Dan Brown novel at this time.

I was curious to find your blog address listed beneath the publisher's address, and so visited the site. Could you explain why you feel Evanescence "is soo totally cool"? and what this has to do with your publishing goals for 2008?

Frankly, All that _I'M_ living for is an editor over the age of twelve with reading skills beyond the sixth grade.

Sincerely yours,

U.S. Writer

Too funny! I can't wait to see tomorrow's letter.
As a writer, I can appreciate the lift. Who doesn't hate rejection?BTW, can we post our eulogy here?

Your use of the brutal truth in publishing was brilliant! I never laughed so hard in my life. Your transition from Catholic girls and priests to the Evanescence bit was golden. You have me waiting on pins and needles for the next letter.
