Lisa As Sue has mentioned, you can handle the rejection yourself. Before doing so, however, and especially as you have alredy worked on the book, I'd check the copy in the collection to make a determination which copy, yours or the one already there, is better. If you feel yours is superior, when returning it to Bookshare, precede the title of the book with the string bso so that Gustavo is allerted that your validation is intended as a replacement. For future reference, prior to actually working on a book, check the collection first. And if your validation process takes some time, a periodic check won't hurt either. I share your frustration. If it is any consolation, if you validate enough books, sooner or later this will end up happening. It, of course, doesn't make it any less frustrating.
