1) Simon and Schuster - ground out to second. A good hard liner, but couldn't find the hole.
2) Harper - struck out looking. Form letter rejection back to Caitlin. Nice. Shoulda kept them on the bench
3) Hyperion - weak grounder to the pitcher. Shoulda kept them at the 9 spot. Rejected for various reasons (I'll post their rejection letter tomorrow)
8) Egmont (From the UK!)
Still on the bench (unless they leap off and force me to play them):
I'm still optimistic - it's only the first inning and Caitlin requested a March 7 response, so there's still a lot of ballgame yet to play!
Here's what Caitlin said about the rejections:
"Try not to get discouraged! [Harper] has very high standards (she handles the Narnia books and Shel Silverstein's estate for example) and Hyperion doesn't buy many projects at all (although they pay very well when they do, so I always try.)"
So heck - they were big swingers for the fences, and like all home-run hitters, they're either hit or miss.
