Yeah, I finally went through the novel from cover to cover and decided I had no more major issues to solve, had resolved most of the minor issues, and it all held together and “made sense”. So I submitted it to Baen Publishing.


A few minutes later I got an automated email from their submission system. It said they would get to my submission in “9-12 months”. As if that wasn’t bad enough, they followed that bit of information up with a note suggesting that I “use the time to work on my next novel.”

So now I’m supposed to wait 9-12 months to get a REJECTION?

I don’t think so. I just don’t see me waiting that long when I can get it on Kindle overnight.
