I always get skipped. I truly don’t understand how this always happens. (maybe what I wrote is odd and they aren’t quite sure what to do about it.) :)

50 pages is a partial. Just getting a partial in the hands of a real pro was always considered at least a small victory. Also, my synopsis was an atrocity. Yikes!

You could be in the "maybe" pile.

@guitaristal: What a fascinating set of stories you have to tell! Yeah, a form rejection means any variation of "I don't think I can sell this." It often has nothing to do with the writing or even the topic. Sometimes they just don't have the editor contacts, the market is shifting from one genre to another, or their client list is too full already. Keep going. There's a good chance someone else will feel differently!

I was Nina Simone's guitarist and music director for over forty years. My memoir is in the form of 30 stories about my adventures with Nina. I submitted my query to Soumeya based on her cat being named Nina Simone, thinking she is a fan and would "get it." What I got was, albeit pretty quickly, the form rejection that everyone is receiving, so don't be fooled by the "personal" touch.

same, misleadingly personal form rejection on both of two submissions (fiction & NF) @ 10 days
