Within 24 hours of emailing ULTRA to Marjacq, I got a rejection email/slip/letter…call it what you like, it was still shocking. Must have been an auto-response. All emails to their “subs” address just get the same rejection because they know they couldn’t be arsed with anything new. All that work they would have to do, selling a new writer to a publisher, the marketing, etc etc. I mean, who would want to bother with all that; it’s no wonder they just say no.
I think perhaps I should keep my entire list of F-words to myself as I am in a state that can only be called incensed…..which is only marginally better than the glums I had all afternoon.
In the meantime, my novels like grapes are being left on the vine and are beginning to wither. The fruit of my creation is dust before it has been consumed.
