I so wish I could help, but I think that getting published is so much harder than writing! However, please keep trying, because your recent book has been very enjoyable to read. How ridiculous for them to say that you are too old-fashioned, and that there are no male pregnancies in your manuscripts. That's because males don't become pregnant!! If that's the sort of rubbish they want then they don't deserve to have you anyway.
Please let us know how you get on.
Wendy

    I refuse to lower my standards just to get published. Thank you for understanding.

Hmm, yes those quandaries. I guess writing the novel may be the easy part. What to do with it next is an adventure.


Other than Goggling the ISBN number to search, I would try a library or Barnes and Noble.


none [of] my males will have babies.

- Males of any species don't have babies.

    Thank you. I have tried googling ISBN and Barnes and Noble. It was an e-book. I haven't found it anywhere. I am not at all happy.

Seriously??? Rejected because you don't include pregnant men! On the upside--you need not restrict yourself to conservative publishers, just to ones not sponsored by Politically Correct Idiots.

As to the original ms--(paper?) perhaps you can have it scanned into your computer so you don't have to retype it.

The ISBN number is the number on the back of your book. It is a [bar code uniquely identifying the book and author]. Find out what that is, or contact the Library of Congress.

Always keep copies of your published work stashed away somewhere. If you donated a copy to a public or private library, book club, church group, contact them. They may have it. I hope this helps.
Blessings,
Sal XOs...

    I'm not sure about an ebook. I would think the same would apply. :))

Wow, it seems that Murphy's Law has visited and stayed for the duration, Barbara. I'm not in a place where I can suggest anything, I can only offer encouragement and hopeful success with your publishing endeavors. I know there are several on FS who have published. Hopefully, they will reply.
Respectfully, Jan

Barb I read you problem. and as you cleverly said,
A problem. I need to search your brains. I wish I could help you, help you, it looks like you have a mess and trying to find how what to do.
What I do, when I write a poem I have a program where you I save each one. And not worry they won't get lost
I'm sorry that you lost your stories, they are wonderful.
Gert

    I have the manuscript and the cover, what I don't have is the kindle version. It's really to be put back into kindle, but I don't know if I can do with that. I do have the ISBN number. Thank you for the well wishes. Prayer is always helpful.

I am truly sorry to have to say that I would be of little to no help at all with your problem. I use Kindle Direct Publishing for all of my publishing and This would probably not be of any real use to you. I can only wish you the best of luck and success in whatever you decide to do going forward.
