What I’m Up To – Update

What I'm Up To Update

I have finished my collaboration with my editor, and I’ve begun the process of querying again. I will be posting more about editors and what made me decide to go that route and how I chose one.

At the moment I’ve started wading through the Literary Agents, and I forgot just how much work that is. I’ll also be talking about finding agents and what to look for in an agent. I’ve talked about this before, but with all good things, a reminder is a good idea.

I’ve learned a lot this time around, more about query letters and writing a Synopsis. Needless to say, it’s been a long and involved process, and I’m both tired and excited. Oh and very, very, very, very nervous.

This time I have my act together, I’ve had my first 50 pages polished, my synopsis perfected and my query letter hammered out and ready to go. I have my handy dandy spreadsheet ready to keep track, and I’m using Query Tracker as well. I’ve already composed a few queries and bravely hit the send button, so I can now wait. 1 to 8 weeks is the standard.

Well, I have some blogs to write about all the things I’ve done and learned through this process. There are still a few details I need to work on in the manuscript. Exciting times are here for me.

Thank you to all who are following my journey.

      • The good news about the rejections is that you heard from them, so you can mark them off the list. I would prefer that to not knowing if they liked it or not. JUST REMEMBER that Harry Potter was rejected over and over again… it just takes “one Agent or Publisher” to like your book!

        In sales we say, “One more NO, brings us closer to a YES!” Keep repeating that with each rejection.

        I know it is hard, but stay positive!

        One day all of your rejections will end up being a good story to tell about your journey to success! 🙂
