I went to my writing group today and there were writers there who thought when their book was done, all they had to do was send it out and Gazam it was published. It doesn't wotk that way! I have sent out numerous MS and only gotten one rejection that offered comments. Most don't do that. They, the publishers are not our friends. In short, they are not friendly. They are trying to make money. And my or your books might not caught their eye but don't give up!!! One day, if the story is great and the writing is great, you will be found, but not if you give up...One last note to the Publishers, Please remember that the writer puts his or her heart and soul, blood and sweat into the MS and for the most gives up living a normal life to write, so try not to be insulting by not reading the MS before returning it with a pre-written rejection letter.
