#Fifteen days into the publishing jungle. Sixteen #queries submitted with two #rejections. Both form rejection emails. That’s two closer to an acceptance. For those of you that don’t know the process, here are the steps:
1. Submit 🙂
2. Wait 😦
3. Either a rejection 😦 or a request for a partial manuscript. 😉
4. Wait 😦
5. Either a rejection 😦 or a request of a full manuscript. 😉 🙂
6. Wait 😦
7. Either a rejection 😦 or an offer of representation. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I’m a little behind and still need to submit 5 more queries this week before Saturday night. Plugging along. Right now searching for agents that want women’s fiction that do not request a synopsis.
Looking forward to the #WFWA Pitch workshop presented by #Kathryn Craft and #Laura Drake. Then I’ll be ready to tackle them all.
What are your recent experiences with querying agents? I’d love to hear from you. And while you are at it, tell me what you think of my new layout for my blog?
One thought on “#MysteriousWorldOfPublicationPost3”
I gave up after three tries. You have to be a salesperson, and I need training. I do plan to try again, but dread the experience. Not because of the rejections, but because of the hours it takes me to choose each agent/publisher, compose the letters, write a captivating synopsis that fits their criteria, and whatever else they require. It takes hours and hours, time I’d rather spend writing a new story.
