Thank you for submitting By the Light of Grace to Covenant. After careful consideration, we have come to the conclusion that it does not fit our publishing needs. Thank you for being willing to share your very personal experiences. Although we did not publish your book, we recognize the tremendous courage it takes to open your heart and bear your testimony. You have a special story to tell. Trust in the Lord’s timing; He will help you tell your story.
We appreciate the skills, effort, and time that have gone into preparing your manuscript.
Best wishes in your future writing endeavors.
EditorialI think their response was the nicest rejection I have ever received, hah! I also recognize what they did say; that they appreciate the skill and effort I put in to writing the book. I really get the impression that those who read it were impressed with it, but that they just didn't feel it was right for their company, at this time.
Such a thing as trusting the Lord should never end on an 'I did,' but rather, should always be a continuous 'I do.'
Simply put, Covenant Publishing was not the Lord's plan.
