There never seems to be enough time in the day to be able to get through everything. Apart from my normal responsibilities as a financial manager, I also want to spend as much time as possible with my wife and my growing son, because they are only this young once. And then above all of that, there is still my dream to consider or my desire to achieve my dream.
I want to get PECAN HILL published but I’m also excited about being able to get into my next story – SPOIL THE CHILD. I’m at the point where I’m more excited about SPOIL THE CHILD than PECAN HILL. Possibly more excited than I ever was about PECAN HILL. But maybe that’s only how it feels now when I have reached the end with PECAN HILL. I’m busy sending out queries to agents to try and get it published. I’ve received several form rejection letters and those are only from the agents who were courteous enough to reply.
I don’t know how many times I have revised my query letter to try and hook agents, but I know I will have to revise it again. It can be so frustrating because the agents haven’t even read the actual novel yet just a single page. I can understand that their time is precious and that they cannot read every single submission. I’ve read about how many times most authors have been rejected before they were able to be published and know that I’ll have to push through.
I’ve basically rejected the idea of publishing an ebook by myself. I would prefer it if I could get published in the traditional sense and have a hard copy product. I think that the cost of publishing an ebook can be a little bit too steep and ebooks are still viewed in a negative light.
Oh well, back to the grindstone…
