Another one

Another rejection letter for me from Mountainland Publishing.  I think this is my 7th one.  If I were a guy trying to ask a hot girl out, I’d have given up long ago.

The Place

This is courtesy of a conversation that was shared between myself and two people who are very dear to me.  We spoke of it over the rising steam of a hot tub one chilly Alberta night.  I like to remind myself of it when I get discouraged or wonder if I will ever find a publisher.

The place God has for you:

Perhaps you can’t go there because the place is not ready for you yet.  The right person, the right events, the right atmosphere is not ready for you.

Perhpas you can’t go there because you are not ready for it yet.  You have more to learn, you have to grow so that when you get there you are perpared.

Perhaps you can’t go there because you need protection.  Even if it is the deepest desire of your heart, it may harm you to be there at this moment.

But rest assured when the place is ready, when you are ready, and when it is safe, God will lead you to where you are meant to be.

Embrace Truth,

I saw Eternity the other night,

Like a great ring of pure and endless light,

All calm, as it was bright;

And round beneath it, Time in hours, days, years,

Driv’n by the spheres

Like a vast shadow mov’d; in which the world

And all her train were hurl’d.

—Henry Vaughan—

Rejections, rejections, rejections

Well another rejection letter came today.  It was from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, the same publishers that did Madeleine L’Engle’s books.  I was really hoping they’d be the ones to take me, just because it’d be the awesomest thing ever to have the same publisher as my favourite author of all time.  Guess that it’s not to be though.

I’m still very hopeful and I trust that the right publisher is out there.  Just haven’t found them yet.  One day.

On the plus side they did get back to me really quickly, which is kind of nice in a way.  I have another publisher I can send out to as well, and I’ll let you know when I do that.

Until then, as usual,

Embrace Truth,

Kayleigh E. Suggett
