Rejection Is Part of the Package

January 24th, I got this email from Crosslink Publishing:

to me

Thank you for submitting your manuscript for our review. After careful consideration, we have determined that it does not fit into our current catalog. We wish you much success in finding the right home for your book.

God bless,

So… I want to ask you, my readers, a question:
Since this seems to be a very generic rejection, do you think I should contact Mr. Bates, asking him what I could do to make my book more marketable. What do you think? Let me know please!
