Return to Sender

Went out to get the mail a few minutes ago and found one of my
self-addressed stamped envelopes waiting for me. Having not queried anything by mail for some time, I had no idea who it might be from.

Turns out it was a rejection from Dorchester Publishing for one of my unpublished novels. Way back when, they responded to an e-query that they wished to see more. I sent them the first three chapters and a synopsis on October 3, 2006, almost three years ago.

Wish they had just let it slide.

Wow. That's about all I can say.

And they wonder why we get impatient.

Man. What a bummer. Remind not to submit to that market if I want to get something published before I die.

Thanks, Guys. Dorchester is actually a first class operation. Woulda been easy for them to simply ignore it, I suppose. Says something about them that they didn't.
