I'm extra bummed 'cause I'd heard that anything this market kept for longer than 30 days was under serious consideration, so I had my hopes up.
Also, this piece is going to be hard to place now. It's extremely graphic and edgy. I hoped it would be a good fit with these folks.
And a niggling "WTF?" I sent them a SASE with my submission packet and they sent me an email reply? If they'd said in their guidelines that they responded via email I could've saved myself the stamp. Grumble.
But, on an up note, it was a nice rejection slip. They said I had an "engaging style" and invited me to send them something else.
Still, pook. A lot.
