Polite Rejection letter

Honestly, I'm about to shelve this project. I've gotten too many rejections that say, this is a great story and so unique but I'm still stepping aside... no reason. If it's because of publishing's "MARKET" and my book doesn't fit than let me know! I'd rather self-publish than have a great book that people won't take risks on.

OK thanks, @KathrynFaye007! That's what I thought. I guess it's just taking a little longer.
