I heard back from Samhain regarding Forever Home. They said no. In a form letter. With no explanation as to why they said no.
Of course getting a rejection hurts, especially when I love this story, more than Sweet Forever even. But it happens. I can handle it. It’s the fact that I got a generic form letter is what bugs me. I have two books with Samhain, they’ve been fantastic to work with, but I’d think they’d give their authors a more personal note. I’m not looking for them to give the manuscript a second chance, but I’d like to know why they said no.
Am I asking too much?
So, here I am, two manuscripts that are ready to go (though I’ll have to tweak FH so it’ll work as a stand alone instead of being a sequel). I don’t know, at this point if I should resubmit to Kensington, or submit That Kind Of Magic to Samhain, or try another publisher all together.
It’s put my new writing on hold.
So, I’ve got some thinking to do today. Got lots to do so I’ll be out and about for most of the day, but I’ll do my mental pros and cons list on this.
All I can say is grrrrr.
