About two and a half weeks ago, I sent a sample of my manuscript to LUNA Books, which is a subset of Harlequin Publishing. LUNA publishes fantasy and science fiction books about strong female characters, with the romance as a sub-plot, not the main one.
So, I sent the sample and recieved… a rejection letter. The rejection letter was generic, however the sample that I sent had coffee stains on it, meaning that someone took the time and read it. I’m so excited!
Besides, I believe that after the first 100 or so rejections, someone will eventually say yes. So, one down and 99 more to go, give or take.
And I’m framing this one.
