Best of Luck...Elsewhere!

I had such a nice exchange with an editor at a small press about my manuscript of personal literary essays, but when push came to shove, she disappeared (left the press), and some new young man sent off a standard form rejection.  I've taken out the name of this press, but only because it might give away some personal information about yours truly.  But, you know, they're all bastards just the same:

Dear Writer, Rejected:

Thank you for your interest in publishing with [Name Withheld] Press. Unfortunately, your proposed project does not fit our current editorial mix. We wish you the best of luck in placing your work elsewhere.
