how should I act about this? 9 months ago I submitted my first novel to three publishers and they all rejected it. No one gave me any feed-back on it. Now I'm about to finish a major rewriting of the same novel, one that will make it quite different to the first one and I was thinking: Could I submit to two of those publishers again even though they already rejected it the first time? I don't want to exclude them because they are two of the biggest publishing houses here and since it's a pretty small country we don't have as many of them as in the US or UK. If I do so, Should I tell them I have already sent a previous version of it before or just pretend like it's new and hoping they won't recognize it or won't bother?
