Gonna Make You An Offer You Can’t Refuse

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAnDQyqV1B4


I'm delighted to hear that the funniest unpublished author on the web, Greg Levin, has at last been offered a publishing deal for his superb Notes on an Orange Burial.

Here is Greg in fine form (presumably written before he got offered a contract):

Dear Literary Agent:

Thank you for your recent rejection notification, but I am afraid that I cannot accept it at this time.

Please understand that I receive a high volume of rejection notifications and must be highly selective in choosing those that I am able to handle.

The acceptance of rejection notifications is a highly subjective process; the fact that I have decided to pass on your rejection in no way signifies that your rejection writing is sub-par. In fact, I strongly encourage you to continue rejecting the queries and submissions you receive each day, and wish you luck in all of your hope-crushing and dream-dashing endeavors.

Sincerely,

Author
