TQR publicizes their rejection letters. I agree that it's disgusting, vile, evil, etc. But I also agree with Matchu...what were you expecting? Those guys are an open book. Take it or leave it.
As I have already mentioned, I'm used to getting rejection letters, and have never before felt the need to talk about them. This one was disturbing however, and it was more
a heads-up measure for my fellow writers here looking for places to submit more than anything else. There are rejections, and then there is something like the response I got that is more vile and disgusting than I have ever seen before.
Publishers (no matter who they are) should have a level of professionalism as well as morals before doing something to someone like they did to me. There should be no place
in publishing for that kind of inflammatory critique.
Don't play their game and then get upset when you get slammed by their rules. And for the record, I leave it. I don't believe in supporting that kind of thing. But regardless, see above.
I was upset because it was completely uncalled for. No writer needs to see anything like that, period. Pardon me for having enough respect for all the other writers in this
community to warn them.
