A Nice Rejection

A Nice Rejection

Since February I have been submitting query letters to two of my books. Submitting one’s MS to publishers whether through email or smail is a long tedious process. There will be a rejection letter in your future. Odds are there will be many of these to show up on your doorstep. It is a fact we need to wrap our mind around. So long as we keep on submitting, this is just a stepping stone.

Recently one came in an email to me. There was one difference though, it was not a form letter. The publisher stated that due to a massive overflow of submissions they would be passing over my MS. But she continued to say that my MS was promising. She did not expand too much but to me this was a win. Not a win win but still something positive I could take from this. It’s a start on my path to getting my book in print.

Sharing this “good news” with others people agreed this was pretty cool news. Maybe I am doing something right was what filled my thoughts. Perhaps there is a publisher who is not overburdened with endless manuscripts.  Someone who would be willing to take a chance on an unknown like myself.

That is my hope as I continue to submit my various writings. My mantra is the same today as it has been since I started this journey. All I need is one person to say yes we love your MS. Just one.

  1. Someone will, you’ll see. I’m wowed by the fact that she said the manuscript was promising. I really am. I’m honored to be a part of your journey. This publisher may have passed over it due to a massive overflow, but others will come who take one look at say ‘Yes, we love this!’ and will be willing to give your book a wonderful home. I have faith in in you. ::hugs::

  2. I want to express my passion for your generosity supporting people who absolutely need help with this one topic. Your real commitment to getting the message all around ended up being really advantageous and have constantly empowered regular people much like me to realize their objectives. Your amazing warm and friendly report indicates a whole lot a person like me and even further to my mates. Thank you; from everyone of us.
