Tabris -

The central story isn't changed, but I've overhauled the opening a couple times to make to more engaging. If they're rejecting just on the query letter, then yes, no point in re-submitting. If they liked the concept but hated the first five pages, then maybe a re-query would work.

But, as you know, they never tell you. It's either silence or just thumbs-down see-ya-later here's-a-form-letter get lost!

Seems to me I just consider those rejections as permanent and move on.

I am not at all sure there is a market for what I'm writing (kinda old-school military-oriented SF) outside Kindle, but I wanted to go through the exercise to see.
