I suppose I should take this as some sort of complement, but the children’s book manuscript I sent out last April earned one final rejection letter.
The reason it took so long is it lived through two editors before being shot down.
That’s some sort of endorsement, right? That one (or two) wanted to show it to someone else instead of rejecting it outright?
Anyway, I already went through all of the SCBWI publisher options for the last round of multiple submissions, so I don’t know if I have any more options.
Just sit on it a while, I guess. Maybe I’ll sing it at the local folk festival someday.
*I* think it’s a hoot, but maybe too much in an inside-joke way.
