The hurry up and wait game continues...
Typically, publishers and editors take 8-12 weeks at minimum to reply to submissions, sometimes with an offer, and then negotiations begin. I have been on submission since September 15 with my agent at LLA... which brings us to 7 weeks out. The waiting game continues and there is so much that is happening in the background, behind the scenes. Hard work, persistence, late nights, rejections, sacrifices, discipline, criticism, doubts, doubters, failure, risks... with all of these, success will come. Hopefully, we will have some exciting news to share in the next few weeks. I am forever grateful to my agent Jeanie who is tirelessly working on submissions, marketing plans, PR pitches, researching the right editors to submit my manuscripts to, and keeping us insanely organized. Jeanie told me yesterday, "it is now a waiting game and a mission to tag the right editor." It will happen.
Stay tuned... thank you for the continued support!
