Dear Ms. Jackson,
Please forgive this form letter but we have decided your manuscript is not right for us at this time, as we do not publish non-fiction. Good luck placing it elsewhere.

Dear editor,
Are you sure it was my manuscript you read? Because I'm sure if it had been, you would be interested. I am re-sending it. Thank you.

Dear Ms. Jackson,
I looked over the files to make sure I read the right submission and I'm sorry, but it is. Your work is not right for us at his time but that does not reflect on the writing, simply our needs. I wish you luck in finding a company that handles this type of work.

Sincerely,
Robin Withers, 
Editor, Siren Publishing

Dear Ms. Withers,
I can't believe you would pass up a book like this one. Will you please consider it again? I just finished doing some editing.   
Thank you,
Vicki

Dear Ms. Jackson,
I read over your submission again and the changes you have made are solid but it is just not a genre we accept. Please try another agency that accepts non-fiction.

Respectfully,
Editor, Siren Publishing

Ms. Withers,
I put a lot of time into this book and I can't believe you don't want it. I bet you didn't even read it.
Vicki.

Dear Vicki,
I assure you I did read it, more than once. Your submission is non-fiction. Siren Publishing only accepts fiction and children's manuscripts.

Dear Robin,
I'm sorry I snapped at you. I lost my job because I'm spending all my time doing those changes you asked for. It'll be okay though, I just know you'll love this one.

Dear Robin,
The edits are going well. I'm spending as much time on it as I can. I was thinking about leaving here for a while. Maybe I can deliver it to you in person.

Your friend,

Dear, sweet Robin,

It was naughty of you to hire those guards but I wonder if you noticed your beloved dog is missing?

You evil bitch! How could you do that to my dog?

I'm sorry, I really am but thanks to you, I have no job and no home. You owe me!

None of that is my fault. Please leave me alone.

Dear Ms. Withers,
I sent in a submission that you kindly rejected.

Robin Withers, Senior Editor at Siren Publishing has gone missing. Her home burned to the ground yesterday, presumably with her inside, but the flames are still too hot for a proper search.
Though a long time employee of Siren Publishing, her job has already been filled by new owner, Mike Feldhouse. Mike comes from a big New York company and plans to include non-fiction to the company’s list of genres, something many writers are thrilled about.



Dear Mr. Feldhouse,

Thank you for acknowledging the submission I sent in, titled: How to get your manuscript published. It's always been a dream of mine to be a writer. I look forward to hearing from you.
