To Be Fair to YouWriteOn ...

Tuesday, 17 March 2009

... they do admit their mistakes. I had another email from them today, this time from an actual person, who actually could tell me what is going on. Imagine!

Here's some of what they said:

I've just come across what looks to be your original submission, which looks to have been forwarded from a Legend Press email address without including your email address. I'm not quite sure why this happened, but it does look as though your submission was lost in the system somehow, for which I heartily apologise.
I've had a quick look at the covers you sent in, and I'm sure that I can utilise them. I've also had a look at your layout, which also looks very good.

Unfortunately, it is too late for this publishing round, but we are still committed to publishing Hedge Witch. We will let you know when we start the next round of publishing, when I am sure that it will be published with no additional problems.

So, they just lost my submission. And they were so overwhelmed getting badly-formatted manuscripts out of the door they didn't get round to sorting out perfectly good ones like mine.

Hey, ho. I suppose I feel a little better about the whole thing now.
