Back to the drawing board

Pop over to the Macmillan New Writers' blog here for a more detailed examination of the disappointing but hardly unexpected news that Macmillan have turned down The Last Free City.

My attention now turns immediately to other means I might use to get the book into print, and what project to begin next. Self-pity is an unattractive characteristic and rarely leads to constructive outcomes. The only way to deal with rejection--it is impossible to function as a writer without this attitude--is to extract as many lessons as possible from the episode and then start writing something else.
