With Apologies to Housman

Home is the manuscript,
Home from New York,
the parcel returned from the slush.

I got the rejection letter in the mail Monday, but just wasn't in the mood to talk about it until today. The novel got a very good rejection (a letter with comments and a compliment, rather than a form rejection), but it's still a rejection. Oddly, I'm just fine with that: I'm not as in love with that book as I used to be, and I think the current one will be much, much better.

So it has officially become my first trunk book. Let's hope I don't write too many in that category...

Sorry to hear that, Wolfgang. But if you're happy with the book (even if you're not as happy with it as your current WIP), why not send it elsewhere? You've been in the business long enough to know that "editor's preferences" do not equal "publishable." Another editor may find it just the thing.
