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.

FULL EMAIL:

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.

Sincerely,
Angela James, Editorial Director

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!

  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!
