“The Big Game” Update – REJECTED

I wasn’t going to post anything today. I’m still recovering from a long week of traveling. I’m also working on a post exploring something I hinted at earlier this month, but I think this is worth mentioning, if only to provide an overdue update of sorts.

About a month ago, I completed my manuscript for my new BDSM-heavy story, “The Big Game.” I felt confident about this because it’s a simple, concise BDSM story that can give BDSM fans exactly what they want. I submitted it to two publishers that specialize in BDSM erotica. I thought I did enough to warrant at least a discussion. Turns out, I was wrong.

Of the two publishers I submitted to, one responded and sadly, it was a rejection letter. They didn’t provide specifics. They just said they discussed this manuscript and decided it wasn’t for them. It’s a major disappointment. Then again, this is the most typical response I’ve gotten from my work thus far. I like to think I’m used to rejection, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating.

As a result, I looked up a couple other BDSM and/or erotica publishers and submitted to them as well. It’ll probably take a while for them to get back to me, but I’m still going to roll the dice on “The Big Game” before I resort to self-publishing again. I’ll keep my fingers, toes, and whatever other body parts I can manage crossed in hopes that someone takes a chance on me. With Crimson Frost still not responding, I’m still in search of my first break. I believe it’ll come. It just may take a while.

When you think about it, it’s kind of like a great orgasm. You have to build towards it, but it’s so worth the wait.

  1. I hate to have ‘liked’ your post..because your news really blows. Well, I guess not really..otherwise it might have been somewhat pleasurable. 😉 From what little I have read that you have written (your most recent 3 posts) you are a good writer..so don’t give up. Not that you were going to. It is weird though. Wonder why they weren’t interested…

    • Thank you very much for your kind words. I appreciate your support. It really does help take the sting out of rejection. I’m glad you think my writing on this blog is decent. I hope that one day, someone in the publishing business sees it too. I don’t intend on giving up. I have plenty more sexy stories to tell. I’m working on one right now and I still have others I’m hoping will get some attention. So long as I have ideas and the energy to make them work, I’ll keep on going. Thanks again for your support!
