While away on tour I set up a vacation email response because I knew my chances to respond would few and far between.
I got a rejection from Mac at Lady Jane's Miscellany. He got my vacation note which said this:
"I am in a van with a bunch of other writers right now.
Chances are I won't have the capacity to respond to this before July 17th.
Why don't you call me if it's so important? I'd probably like to hear from you: 847-828-2366
Mac must have thought that was a personal email, because he sent an email saying this:
"Not a big deal, Jac, just update on things.
It makes me laugh every time I think about Mac getting that vacation email and thinking, "Chill, bitch. I was just rejecting you."
