well, shit.

Well, shit.

Anna at Tor turned down HEART OF STONE. It is an insanely *positive* rejection, but a rejection none-the-less.


I don’t seem to feel inclined to talk about it a whole lot more right now. I probably will in a couple of days. Maybe even tomorrow.

A request: if you want to say “aww”, that’s fine, but please don’t yell, “Fuckers!” or say, “Bitch!” or anything, which I know I do to express frustration, but when I’m talking about writing and rejections and those responses end up on the web in comments, it makes me really uncomfortable. Thanks.

  1. Was it a ‘the line is full’ rejection or a ‘you’re so almost there but just not quite’ rejection? And did she turn it down or the people she had to sell it to?

  2. Aw :/ Nice rejections are much better than standard rejections, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a positive response the next time.

  3. Positive rejection is almost worse, ’cause she obviously liked it. Or a) she wouldn’t have requested the whole thing. And b) she wouldn’t have said so in her rejection note.

    Awww. :( I’m sorry.

  4. Anything where they do not leave you hanging is a positive step! You’re this |__| close and that is AWESOME!

  5. Sniff! And lots of hugs to you. You’re a great writer – they’ll start picking your stuff up soon.
