EDIT: I have taken out the name of the agency who sent me the rejection as it was pointed out that this could be viewed as anger/bitterness instead of my real intention of just being as forthcoming about this for educational purposes.
I got another rejection last night. This one WAS a form letter. Not even a form letter disguised as a nice rejection. This one was a ‘Dear Author’. They did, at least, admit that it was a standard form rejection, so a little bit of self-awareness was nice.
So, I guess I have another rejection to add to my spike (pictures of which will be forthcoming).
Keep those fingers crossed ladies and gents, the odds are getting smaller every day.
