A company has asked twice for my synopsis. Afterward they said that they didn't have a category for my story. I kind of got discouraged here. Should I keep trying?

Sophia,

    I didn't know what category my story was in until I got a rejection that said, "We don't publish 'Women's Fiction'."  Please try somewhere else. At least I found out what I was writing was Women's Fiction.  Who knew?  So, why bother with all that rejection in the first place?  Publish it yourself on Amazon.com. It's free and there are step-by-step instructions all over the site.  Once your book, and you can do Kindle,not just print, is published (done) you start making money on it.  Of course Amazon will take a cut, but I say cut out the middle man.  It's bad for the self-esteem.
