OUR HOSTS THIS MONTH:
OPTIONAL IWSG DAY QUESTION:
What publishing path are you considering/did you take, and why?
Short answer: I’m going traditional but I’ve mostly submitted to indie publishers. Why for the experience and creds. Now, I’m looking at landing an agent. Form rejections galore so far, but my journey has just begun. Below is what I’ve been considering since my hunt has begun.
What does it mean when an agent (reader) doesn’t connect?
I didn’t know so I searched the web for insightful advice.
Turns out that not connecting was a common rejection in a form letter. I didn’t know I was getting form letters until I checked Agent Comments in QueryTracker. Every letter was there.
One point I’d like to make is the majority of them were kind and encouraging. They didn’t have to write them like that and I know it.
I also revamped my query package and am trying again.
Any of you find an agent using the slush pile? Care to share how it went.
