If you read the title, then you probably already figured it out. My short story, Coming Home just wasn't what WRP was looking for. I see the point and I see that I don't have to agree. (democracy is great). I also see that there could be improvements to anything. No hard feelings.
So, my cup is half full. My crit partner who excels in erotic romantic fiction is still behind me. The short story, according to my editor (yes, I still like and respect her) is well-written and exciting. My style is greatly improved. The menage just wasn't done for mutual gain. Makes sense. I didn't want it for mutual gain, but isn't one helluva orgasms a gain? : )
I'm learning that everyone has an opinion and no one is truly wrong in voicing those opinions. Still it hurts to receive that rejection in the email. I know that the story will find a home. I already have that under control.
Now, it's full-steam ahead and work on the other stuff. I refuse to get down in the dumps.
My vamp/hero calls, along with my Ancient Greek Gregorius, and my Air Force boys.
Back to the bat cave.
