Another rejection, this time with comments. Which is helpful and painful both. Apparently the reader didn’t get through the first two pages (ouch) and thought the story had no hook and that I was “trying too hard”. Not entirely sure what to do about the trying too hard bit, but I guess I can revisit the beginning paragraphs and see if the action can’t move a little more quickly.
So, another round of editing and then I’ll figure out the next place to send this one.
Still waiting for Space Bones, Delilah, and to hear about Clarion.
I hate wait.
