Still Waiting for the Right Publisher

Another set back (i.e. rejection) on my quest to have  my humorous novel the Strength of Secrets published. I'm open to suggestions on where to submit, as long as you do not suggest self-publishing. While little marketing help is given to authors  from traditional publishers,  if you self publishing you receive  none! And,  you pay for the privilege of seeing your book in print. 

If you work at a publishing house and are looking for a 77K to 110 K novel for YA to adult in the mainstream and Christian fictionmarket, contact me at rrgernon@gmail.com

The first chapter may be read by clocking here.
