Rejection at Committee

When a book makes it all the way to committee, and then is rejected, what are some of the factors that play into that rejection? (You may have already talked about this)

I have sort of talked about it here—see last paragraph.

Most often, it's a marketing issue—we don't think we can sell enough copies, for whatever reason, to meet our needed profitibility levels.

Yep, been there, and at that point, it wasn't the quality of the book. They loved the book--just didn't think the market was ripe for it.
