So Close But No Banana

Dear Jennifer,

Thank you for your recent submission to CUTTING BLOCK PRESS for our upcoming anthology "Horror Library Vol 4".

We have received and read your story, and it has made its way through our editing staff. Unfortunately at this time we're going to have to pass on your story. While well written and interesting, we felt it just didn't fit what we were looking for at this time for the collection.

Thank you for your interest, and we wish you all the best with your writing. We'll be reading again this time of year next year, so keep an eye on Ralan's and our website for updates and guidelines for submissions.

R.J. Cavender

I wish more of my stories played well with other stories. :)

I got a rejection like that one. You missed it by "that" much.

Then you go back and try to figure out what they liked and what made them finally say no. Meanwhile you know you were "that" close to getting a yes.

It's a positive though. Positives are good, even if they don't quite get there.
