Positive Rejection

I’ve just had a rejection for the horror novel from a UK editor.

He did say my synopsis was well-written, and would have been enough to make him want to read the whole thing, but that the plot sounded too familiar.

This I actually find quite encouraging for a rejection. If the point of the synopsis is to make the editor want to read the full manuscript, then it seems it has succeeded. And synopses are a killer to get right, as all writers know.

So on the whole, I count this one as a good rejection.
