Man, just when I think the website troubles are over. Still, I’m pretty used to this keyboard. And I actually think it’s my poor internet this time, so I’m not going to complain. Much.
So I’ve sent off even more query letters. It’s strange researching a person, trying to figure out their likes and dislikes. I wonder if this is what online dating is like. Seriously, I check out profiles, stalk some twitter posts, and then send my message out there in the hopes of a response.
The really hard part is it takes about six weeks for most agents to get back to you. IF they get back to you. There’s no shortage of people trying to get agents, so these people don’t have a lot of spare time. I guess I understand. Once they’ve signed someone they have to dedicate a lot of time and effort to get that person published and getting a good deal for them. I suppose I wouldn’t want to be represented by an agent if I found out they barely did any work.
Still, it’s hard. Six weeks from today I might, maybe, possibly get a reply from some of the people I’ve queried. That won’t be until 2019! That just seems insane, but I get it. Gotta keep busy, though. Can’t sit around refreshing my inbox all day. New projects are on the horizon and a new adventure is just down the road.
I’m excited to share what I’ve got planned with you guys, but I need to get things moved along a little further. In the meantime... I don’t know... maybe I’ll watch Wreck It Ralph 2.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
