Bad Timing?

Another rejection came in the mail today. It was for "Love in Bloom," my 37th story, set in a florist shop. This one did have a note from Johnene, though.

Sorry this one didn't work for me. We've had a spate of florist stories!

Darn. That happens sometimes. Something else must not have been up to par, otherwise I think she probably would have kept it for future use. Oh well, I still have three more out there.

If people want me to, I'll post the rejected story. :)

I'd like to see it.

Sorry about the rejection. I hate it when they have too many of something. Most of my rejections are for that reason. I'd like to see it also.

Kate, I don't know what you do with your left over (rejected) stories, but I see there is an interesting sweepstakes for self-publishing at

Uh-oh. I just mailed a florist-themed story.

OTOH, I did get a rejection this week, but it was for one submitted in Feb. I figure the longer it takes to return to me, the closer I am to being published.

Okay, I'll post it. :)

I don't usually do anything with the rejects. When the Trues were still in print, I expanded a couple of rejects for them, but stopped doing it when Dorchester started having major problems.

Yes, Kay, I think the longer they have it, the better. So it's funny how on the one hand, I want to hear from them. On the other hand, I DON'T want to hear from them. LOL
