I Got My First Rejection!

I submitted the following story Hank Iowa: Interstellar Public Relations, to Ray Gun Revival and was rejected. That’s okay, it’s not going to be the last. Oh I still recommend checking out the short stories on their site, they’re usually pretty good. I was surprised to receive direct feedback from the editor. I was expecting a simple form email saying in nice terms, “No thanks.”

I’m actually glad I got this rejection especially because of this feedback.

This story has good action, good storytelling, and good characters. Unfortunately, there are no real good guys to root for. I don’t care whether Iowa’s group is successful because they’re just as bad morally as their opponents.

The main character is neither likeable enough or enough of a rogue to be engaging.

Anyway since this story got rejected I might as well throw it up here and see what you guys think.
