Another nice rejection. I’m starting to realize what everyone tried to warn me: short story collections just don’t sell. I was hoping a strong query letter would help me out, but perhaps not.

So now I guess I start working on the next book and put this one aside. That’s so darn depressing, I can’t even tell you. However, there are a couple of strong book ideas in my head, and there’s a lot of joy in writing . . . And there’s also wine.
