Earlier this year I was completely overwhelmed by my work on a secret project. Finally, it was finished. I was in love with it and embarked on The Great Agent Hunt.
The agents I’ve contacted have been nice, even offering constructive criticism (which I’ve used), but none have shouted “I’ve been waiting for your book for my whole life!”
Since I haven’t turned into an agent’s book-fairy godmother, I’ve been thinking about my options. All the advice and wisdom is that you have to give agent hunting a year or so. At a minimum, six months. But…I’m impatient. Self-publishing has taught me that publishing can be FAST.
And so we come to temptation. It has been dropped into my path. I’m looking at another option to waiting on an agent, and then, waiting and hoping that an agent can place the book with a publisher.
The thought of being able to talk about the secret project and to share it soon is really appealing. In fact, it’s so appealing that I’ve pretty much talked myself into abandoning the agent hunt — for now — and taking this other seductive publishing path.
When I do, you’ll hear about it. I’m hoping you’ll come on this journey with me. I’ll need a lot of support, but I’ll share what I learn. And at the end, you’ll have a great book to read. The secret project is genuinely intriguing.
