Writer's Summit Tip #24:
NEVER ASK WHY...
your book was rejected for publication. The publisher won't tell you and it will drive you crazy if you try and second guess the reason.
Just know that a publisher will only accept a book for publication if it is EXACTLY the right fit for them at EXACTLY the right time. Everything else gets rejected.
Don't take it personally, it has nothing to do with you. It has to do with their bottom line.
One story, from an editor who felt bad about rejecting manuscripts without explaining goes like this:
"I was a young editor and I asked if I could write a note on the rejection slip so the author wouldn't feel bad about the reason I had to reject their manuscript. My boss said not to, but I did anyway. What I got back surprised me. Instead of making the authors feel better, sometimes I enraged them and they wrote back to me to tell me I was stupid not to see the merit of their work. Othertimes, they wrote back pleading with me to change my mind. In all cases, I opened up a conversation that was going to go nowhere. It always ended badly. I stopped writing to authors after the first few times. I wish authors could understand, it never was about them or the merits of their work, it only had to do with our current agenda.
