Story has potential but No Thanks!

Hi All,

I just got a response to a childrens manuscript I sent to a publisher. It basically said it has potential but forget it!

It read like this: UGGHHHH!!!

Thank you for your submission. Iíve taken a good look at your work and passed it on to the editorial director for his view also. Although it was agreed that XXX has potential, Iím afraid that we have outlined our publishing list for 2013 and the first half of 2014 and will not be taking it any further.
Thank you for your time and consideration in XX Publishing. Iíd like to take this opportunity to wish you the very best of luck in finding a publisher for your work.

Actually, no hard darts on you for this one. This is an admitted case where their slots are filled at the present and foreseeable future. I've received several of these in the past three months.
