I guess the title says it all. ALMOST one step closer to getting published.
The day before Thanksgiving, I sent out a query letter to a literary agency. I always say that I’ll keep you guys in the loop, so here you go!
A query letter contains your book’s log-line, plot summary, and a short biography describing your achievements as a writer. I thought that the overall letter turned out pretty well. The problem is, I have to wait eight weeks in order to receive a definite “no” from the literary agency. I’m not entirely excited about the wait; but that’s just the “worst case scenario”. I could also receive an actual letter from the agency denying my query, or, in regards to the “best case scenario”, I could receive a reply telling me that they’ve accepted to help me find a publisher.
That’s what literary agencies do. I’m going traditional with my book; first find a literary agent, the agent finds you a publisher, and then the publisher…well, you know, publishes your book. That’s what I’m hoping for!
So I’m ALMOST one step closer to getting published, because I haven’t gotten a literary agent yet. Once I get an agent, then I’ll REALLY be one step closer to getting published.
Prayers, support, and spreading the word about TSOM is most welcome!
