I was thrilled last fall when the agent I pitched wanted to see my book. I could hardly believe the idea sounded interesting enough she wanted to have a look.
Once I got home, I looked up the agency's LONG, LONG list of manuscript formatting criteria and set up my book or success. I had it to her within two days.
Then, the wait began...
I've published both independently and with small presses. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. I'll go through that another time, but suffice it to say that there's a lot of waiting involved in querying agents and publishers.
Nine months ago, I queried an agent at a writer's conference. I knew to expect a long wait, but truthfully, I had hoped I would have heard back by now.
Yes or No?
I won't be bent out of shape if the answer is "no," but I just want to get that yes or no so I know what happens next. All life didn't stop for me, and I'm trying to be patient, but WOW is it getting hard after nine months.
Affix fingers to keys and WRITE!
I've kept myself very busy with other writing projects, as you can see by looking at the MyBookProgress info in the sidebar of my site.
Nine Months and Counting
So here I am, nine months later, getting ready to pitch that same book and some others to publishers and an agent at the Ozarks Writers League quarterly conference.
I'll be "pitching" four books to a couple of publishers and an agent. We'll see if anything sticks. I'll keep you posted.
Wish me luck!
