To hear back from a Publisher at all is pretty amazing, let alone getting kind feedback on why my work was rejected…so in a small way, I see this as a win.
It’s a step in the right direction, I think.
As well as finishing (or so I thought! Ha!) my Memoir manuscript, I wrote a Romance Novella. I type out a chapter on my phone and upload it to my Facebook status every few days/weeks. It’s been surprising that sooo many of my friends – and their Mom’s – have loved it, have connected to the characters and have encouraged me to 1) keep writing and uploading chapters; (many of my friends requested to be tagged on the posts so they wouldn’t miss a chapter) and 2) submit my Novella to a Publisher.
Here’s the feedback I recieved from Kingsley Publishers 3 months after submitting 3/4 of my manuscript:
** I don’t understand why, but I see this as really hopeful somehow? **
