Rejection letters

Rejection… *sigh*

After nearly 60 days and reading my full manuscript. I R rejected… My face now. 😦

Reads like a form rejection but it says they read the full manuscript… not sure. Wish there was more feedback.


Dear Kawanee Hamilton,

Thank you for submitting Nwa Pante Rising to Carina Press, and for your patience while the acquisitions team reviewed your full manuscript.

Unfortunately, after careful consideration of your manuscript, we have determined that it does not fit our needs.

Though we aren’t able to accept this manuscript, it is always possible that future manuscripts may find a home with us, and we hope you’ll consider us for future submissions. Additionally, please remember that publishing is quite subjective, and what doesn’t work for one publisher may work for another so we wish you the best of luck in placing this manuscript elsewhere.

Thank you for your interest in working with Carina Press.

Angela James, Editorial Director

  1. Yeah it really sucks when that happens. Try submitting to ScribbCrib, Show Me Doctrine, or Pink Girl Ink. I was surprised that all of them offered me contracts for my manuscript so I suggest submitting to all of them. I also submitted to Persea Books but received a rejection with them. I’m currently working with ScribbCrib and they are really good!
