2nd edition, w00t!

October 24, 2016

Hey ya’ll.

Soooooo, I finally heard back from Tor and it was disappointingly anticlimactic. I knew it was coming. (Well, I knew my manuscript was rejected, I just wasn’t sure if I was ever going to receive a letter saying so!) The letter is known as a “standard rejection”, or SR, and here it is:

Dear Author,

We have given careful consideration to your manuscript and we are sorry to say that we do not feel we can offer to publish it. This is a personal judgement, of course, reflecting our own editorial needs, and the decision of another publisher might be quite different. For this reason, we prefer not to give more specific criticism.

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your manuscript and we wish you the best of luck in placing it elsewhere.

Ho hum. Onward and upward. Roll with the punches. Coat yourself in idioms 🙂 In the meantime, I finished a 2nd edition of The Feast and released it last week. So you can check out the “where to purchase” link for an updated looksie.

Or here 🙂

That’s all for now, folks!

Take care,
