    Request for Resubmission?

    I submitted my book to a known publisher, and the editor said it was good, but came back with a request for rewrites - most of these things were pretty standard craft issues that I'd missed in my edits (spots with repetition, head hopping, clunky dialogue, that sort of thing) - so I revised, had it beta-read and resubmitted about a month later. The book is much stronger for the rewrite.

    The feedback was great, and I was impressed that this editor took the time to write these things instead of flatly rejecting; but I'm wondering, do you really have a shot with publisher when this happens?
