Thanks but No Thanks

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post, for once again Cat’s Eyes has been rejected. I’m pretty sure this one was a form letter, but it did say that they didn’t think the story was “strong enough” for representation by them. By “them”, I mean Curtis Brown Australia.

That’s two marks against “not strong enough”. Maybe that’s the standard reply these days, which would mean it means nothing. But, maybe it means exactly what it means. I don’t know. I’ll be keeping tabs in the future.

Oh well, I’ll add this rejection to the others and submit it again. I’m not sure where or when, but I do know it will be soon and somewhere. I’ll keep you informed.

  1. My form rejection from CB read:

    “Thank you for your submission to Curtis Brown. I’m afraid we do not feel sufficiently confident that we could place this with a publisher to offer you representation with this agency. This is a very subjective business and another agency or publisher may well disagree. We wish you all the best in finding a suitable home for your work.

    Please excuse the impersonal nature of this note. Due to the high volume of material we receive we cannot write a personal response to everyone. “
