Getting rejected by a publisher hurts, like it did for me today. In my case this time it was a rejection in the devotional genre. But after the “throwing writing in” thoughts subside, it occurred to me to try another publisher or use it in some other genre or reuse it into something else completely. It’s not over yet…And I still have several devotions on the short list with the same publisher. One can’t force the hand that chooses. That’s the way it goes in publishing.
