Word came today that the road to publication would be a bit longer for me. Although the editor really enjoyed my manuscript and had some very nice things to say about it, she ultimately felt it wasn’t the right fit for her and Chronicle Books. She did have some great feedback for me that I will certainly take into account as I go back to revise.
But this is just a bump in the road. They say the average is seventeen rejections before a contract offer (This business is certainly not for the feeble) so I guess I’m one step closer. Time to push forward and put in some more work so I can find a home for my manuscript.
