I came across an article written by an editor about rejection. http://nielsenhayden.com/makinglight/archives/004641.html
If you’re an author, I strongly suggest reading the article. Especially the 14-point list of reasons this editor rejects manuscripts.
I’m not really afraid of my work being rejected because I know it’s just a part of learning. Plus, I have a Plan B. That being said, Oasis is currently undergoing editing. My goal is to have it done and submitted by the end of August. It’s a lot of work, I’ll have you know.
