A petty revenge
After eight months of waiting I was delighted to finally receive your response to my manuscript submission. As I opened your letter I hoped against hope that you would want to publish my carefully crafted book of essays.
Sadly it was not to be.
You weren't interested.
You said it doesn't meet your needs at this time.
Well, I just want you to know that you were my second choice publisher anyway. There was a publisher I was way more interested in than you! You were just my safety publisher!
Unfortunately my first choice publisher wasn't interested in my manuscript either. But I got the last laugh there too. I just told them they were my second choice publisher.
If you change your mind let me know. I'll just be here waiting by my mailbox.
