As a very small press we have to be extremely selective about which books we do decide to publish and unfortunately we will not be taking on yours. I felt there were some good ideas here but that the manuscript as a whole was not what we're looking for at F-. I like much of your writing style, however, and wish you every success with this.
Sigh. I only have one publisher to hear back from now. On the plus side, any letters I have had back that have personal comments have always been positive. They don't tell me to Naff Off and Never Darken Their Doors Again. I seem to have 'potential'.
Maybe they'll like this next one more. 35,000 words and counting...
Here is some cake to cheer you up.
