Another Failure

(I set up this blog with the idea that these are not truly failures as long as the lesson is to learn from them. But they can become tiring.)

Dear John,
 
Thank you for the opportunity to read your submission. After careful consideration, we have concluded that we are unable to publish your work at this time. The opportunity to assess the unpublished creations of writers from around the world is a great privilege and responsibility, and with that in mind, we want you to know how honored we are that you have trusted us to consider your work. We invite your further submission and correspondence and remain grateful for your continued support of the ongoing Caketrain project.
 
With best wishes,
 
Amanda & Joseph
