Rejection Letter #3

I just received my third rejection letter from a publisher.

“Thanks for the submission but Guards Gone Wild is not for us.”

Short and sweet. That’s from Publisher #2.

3 down and just 1 more left. I really hope Publisher #3 has some positive news for me.

Rejection Letter #1

I just received my first rejection letter from a publisher.

“…we didn’t feel the content worked for us.

1 down and 3 more chances left. 2 really, because I am not holding out for Publisher #4. They (#4) didn’t even reply to my original enquiry regarding multiple submissions of my manuscript and that email was sent in December last year.

I was really hoping Publisher #1 would take me on. They publish crime stories in both the fiction and non-fiction categories so I thought they might want to take on my book since it is a whistle-blower’s account of Singapore’s private security industry.

It looks like I might end up having to self-publish after all.
