Home - is where I want to be / But I guess I'm already there /I come home -
she lifted up her wings /
Guess that this must be the place...

What is the worst thing that could happen?

"Nothing?" :)

"Nothing" is also what happens if you don't send it in. So your net loss would be, um, nothing. :)

Worst that could happen: Dear 'Author'

We understand from your cover letter that the collection of words on paper you sent us were intended to be a novel. What an interesting concept. Next time you might try applying some actual talent to the process. We have learned that doing so produces superior results.

Signed,
arrogant & sons publishing.

Best thing
Having the *next* publisher snatch it up, so you can laugh at arrogant and sons for years to come.
