Like all authors seeking validation by gaining acceptance to an exclusive publishing house, I submitted "Unlikely Venture" in hopes of scoring a lucrative contract and promises of making the bestseller lists. Fortunately, like a Band-Aid being yanked from a wound, three out of the three I submitted to rejected it right away, for a variety of reasons that were kind of evasive and basically not very constructive.
