Lara Nance – How to Avoid the Rejection Blues

When Maeve McKenna renounces her witch powers and accepts a low-key nurse practitioner position at a Virginia retirement community, the last thing she expects is a suicide her first day on the job.

As the town’s sexy sheriff, Paul Sutton, starts looking into the tragic death of his father’s friend, Maeve can’t help but get involved–with both the case and him. Their informal investigation unveils an old journal that connects the ruins of a nearby asylum and long-forgotten cemetery with the shiny new retirement community’s memory unit–and Maeve’s Alzheimer’s patients.

Maeve senses a sinister presence in the old asylum, calling to the patients, but in order to stop it from killing again, she must first conquer some demons of her own and reclaim the magic she’s denied herself.

How to Avoid the Rejection Blues by Lara Nance

Rejections should be viewed as tools. I can usually find a lesson in most rejections that I can use to avoid further rejections in the future. Look at it as constructive criticism and try to find some element that helps you with your craft.

I’ve even used rejections to meet agents and editors at conferences if there was something memorable about the rejection. Once I sent an agent flowers because she actually gave me some feedback with the rejection. At the RWA convention a year later she still remembered me because of that and encouraged me to keep pitching her.

There will always be that one psycho that is mean nasty and probably never even read your book. They will go to hell, so don’t worry about them.

Give yourself one day to pity yourself over a rejection, then stop thinking about it and move on.
