Which Way To Go?

As you may know from this blog post, I’ve recently signed a contract with Astraea Press to publish my debut novel, Along the Way Home.

I’m wondering if any readers would be interested in the “getting it to print” side of writing? As in, would reading blog posts about how the “after the contract” part of publishing is going for me be interesting, or boring?

    • Artemis,

      You’ll know more than most once my edits start rolling in and I need a virtual shoulder to rant/cry/and ultimately figure out how to make it better šŸ™‚

      For everyone who doesn’t know this…Artemis is one of my critique partners and her knowledge of horses, Virginia, and the details of death have been vital to my writing! (Hope you like that sentence…you’ll see why soon!)


    • Monica,

      I admit, I didn’t think I’d get such a plethora of responses all wanting to know the details! Is there anything in particular you want to know or just general stuff?


      • Christi, I’ve worked with editors, but haven’t worked with an agent. So your experience with agents would be interesting to learn about. Beyond that, I know whatever you feel like sharing will be fun to read.

    • Talynn,

      Hello there! Your blog is doing so well, congratulations!

      I’m trying to come up with interesting ways to discuss what’s happening, hope it works šŸ™‚


  1. Yes, please! I’m not quite there yet, but I’m at the point where I can see the light at the end of the tunnel of revision. (Well, I know there is techinically no end, but I think my submission time is getting nearer.) Even though conferences talk about this kind general, I’d love to hear a personal story–I find that a lot easier to get a hold of.

    • Wendy,

      Ahhhh the light at the end of the tunnel. I totally know what you’re saying. For me I used to say it was that I could see the finish line, but I still have X miles and hilltops to overcome before I could finally rip down that ribbon.

      As for starting to query, I highly recommend using QueryTracker. It’s an amazing resource rife with information and comments about agents and publishers. And you can track all your submissions (privately so no one else knows what you’re doing) in one place.

      Plus, it keeps track of your submission info and then breaks it down into pie graphs, percentages of good vs bad responses, timelines for replies, averages, etc…

      Yeah, I wasted a LOT of time on there! šŸ˜€
