    No worries. I've sent it to Wild Rose--this time, it *is* a revision. They'd expressed some interest earlier this year. Fingers crossed.

    Congrats to those who have been accepted and good luck to everyone else!
    Thanks, seaaircarol! Oh what I meant was did you resub to Samhain after they returned your manuscript with comments.
    Good luck with Wild Rose!

    And thanks, Sonarbabe, for the inside information.

    Thanks. And no, it wasn't a resub. It was my first try at submitting to Samhain.

    I got a reject on my request for full this week from Samhain, but it was such a great reject that it was almost (almost) as good as an acceptance. Lindsey McGurk had my fantasy for only three weeks or so before I heard back, so it could be they get fewer submissions of SF and fantasy than other genres so the turn-around times are faster. I must say, Ms. McGurk seems like a fantastic editor--she completely pinned the problem with my manuscript and I'm actually having fun going through and fixing things--and she's very professional and seems quite nice.

    Emily, do you have any tips on what Samhain's looking for in the fantasy genre at the moment? I mean, tips besides "read my book," which I'm intending to do anyway.

    I'm sorry you got a rejection, Saanen, even if Samhain's rejections are less painful than others. :hug: Glad you're having fun revising, though. I hope you get the acceptance on the next go-round.

    Sorry about your rejection, Saanen.

    Nothing original I can say except "keep chugging along", which I'm sure you are doing

    Cheers

    Sorry to hear it.

    Did you get comments? One interesting thing that happened to me was first I got a standard rejection. Then, a few weeks later, I got a more detailed rejection, citing the problems they had with my ms. I asked if I could work on the issues and resubmit. Although they said no, they said they liked my writing and would gladly look at other submissions.

    No. I thought that was odd, too, because I have heard they usually do send along some form of critique or reasons for the rejection, but in my case that didn't happen.
