Yes, I am dissappointed to say that my manuscript has returned following an enduring 5 months of waiting to hear a verdict.
I have to add that although the manuscript was eventually turned down, the publisher did find merit in the concept and did intitially show interest, asking for additional information in supporting the marketing of the book.
Unfortunately, for me of course, the publisher needed to tap into a concept which would have a larger audience.
So all is not lost; my idea is still sound, I just need to grab the right publisher which can afford to take on a concept that perhaps doesn't target the largest of audiences. In my opinion I believe my concept would address enough interest to warrent publishing. Now my job is to seek and send once again.
