Rejected Already

It's true. I've gotten my first Which means that the self-addressed envelope I sent to Kensington Publishing will never make it home. And I wasted a forever stamp on it, damnit. Here's the rejection:

Dear Ms. Trinque,

Thank you for querying me about your project, OFFICE SUPPLY ART. While this sounds like quite a hilarious proposal, at only 12,000 words, it’s a bit too short for our current list. A project of such a length would make a wonderful gift book, but unfortunately, Citadel does not publish gift books at this time.

I’m sorry I don’t have better news for you, but I wish you the best of luck in your search for a publisher.

All Best,


See, it's actually kind of a good rejection, as far as rejections go. And I will admit, I thought this was kind of a long shot for me. Cross your fingers for a yes next time!
