THANKS FOR THAT BUT PLEASE HAVE THE PROFESSIONALISM TO GET MY NAME RIGHT. Even if I am a reject.
Thank you for the opportunity to consider the synopsis and sample of your work, and for your patience in awaiting our response.
We have given your submission serious attention and even though your work is intriguing, unfortunately we have decided not to pursue it further.
Regrettably, we can’t be more specific than that. The volume of submissions we receive means we can’t give personalised explanations of the specific reasons for our decisions.
Please don’t be discouraged. Opinions vary considerably in publishing and you may well find another publisher with the necessary degree of enthusiasm for your book.
Please note, we don’t keep submissions we are not proceeding with. If we have received return packaging with the submission, we return them. Otherwise we shred them.
Again, thank you for thinking of us, and our very best wishes in placing your work elsewhere.
