During , I got a like from small publisher. When I went to submit, one of the questions asked was how would I market the book. This stopped me in my tracks - for two weeks. I came up with the usual ideas, blog, ask for reviews, go to conventions, tweet more, etc, etc.

Halfway through my last edit. Ha! I thought I was done a month ago. Received a request from an editor through But ... they don’t accept anything vulgar. πŸ€” I had to think about it, so I suppose it’s not a Good fit.

Mine's with a publisher atm. They asked me to submit it to them when they saw my pitch. Is that a good thing or not?

I have seen contests on Twitter that make the best writers feel less than. Those "mentors" seem to enjoy engaging in a subtle form of bullying. I suggest everyone just boycott them. and the permutations thereof are the only legit contests I know of.

Big thanks to all my friends, betas, & CPs. Whether you knew me for years or I just met you last fall, I really appreciate your help and support. Thank you, adorably social parents, for being cool when I was a cave-dweller on deadline. Thank you, God! Thank you, !

Hi. If a publisher charges you money, they are NOT A TRADITIONAL PUBLISHER. And if they tell you that's what "small indie publishers" do, they are LYING to you and you need to RUN AWAY.

I know a few writers might be feeling rundown for not getting agent likes for their pitches. Remember that this is not the end. Your pitches are brilliant I loved and saw so many unique pitches with no attention. While this is just one bump, it is not the end of the road!

And I can't overstate the importance of other people in the journey: my really good writing groups and critique partners (OWLs, MD Space Opera Collective, VP20s, Clarion '17s). I also found my amazing agent through . Success is a spiderweb, not a rocketship.

If you've been approached by Eliezer Tristan Publishing as a result of , be warned. There's a $500 fee and the contract is one of the most unprofessional I've ever seen. Staff also lack professional book publishing experience.

Thanks to & for a great . I saw a lot of fresh, unique pitches out there today, which was super exciting. If your pitches didn’t perform as you hoped, please remember tweets are not at all an indicator of a finished manuscript. Get to querying! πŸ’•

It's been a lousy week . 3 rejections, 1 on a full I really wanted. Not a single bite on my pitches. I'm behind on reading for a CP. Everything feels blah. Please give me your best suggestions for mucking through this process when you want to give up.
