(She said this in her rejection - You are a strong writer with an engaging voice and I found much here to love. That said, I'm having a hard time seeing how I would position this to break out in the crowded market. As a result, I have regretfully decided to step aside.) I get that it's a nice rejection but also hurt. A lot.
