First off we'd like to thank you for submitting to CTTA. After careful consideration we've decided to pass on your story, Jareth. Please don't take this as a comment on the quality of your work. CTTA is produced on half a shoestring and we have to make some agonizing choices on what to publish. We had close to 200 stories submitted to us this go round and we can only print 10. We strongly recommend you submit to other publications and hope you will submit to us in the future.
Having said that I wanted you to know that your story received high grades from our readers and I enjoyed it also. Thanks again for giving us a look at your fine work and good luck with your future work.
