I have changed my strategy in the past couple of weeks for trying to get my book published, sending queries and forms to agents instead of publishers. So far, I’ve contacted three agents from a list of ten (it’s been a busy couple of weeks). Score so far: 0 for 2 that I’ve heard from. The third hasn’t replied.
I know, it’s more difficult to find an agent than a publisher, but I thought it would be worth a try. The rejection messages were encouraging and sympathetic, but I think I’ll try the rest of the agents on my list and then go back to publishers. I did hear from Robinson Knox Publishers after I sent them a query and the first three chapters of Wings. They wanted to see the whole manuscript, so I sent that in but haven’t heard anything back. Patience, patience.
In the meantime, I need to start on the outline for the second book in the Wings series, which will be called On Eagle Wings Upborne. I have a lot of ideas for the second book of Otto’s adventures. Watch this space!
I would be remiss if I didn’t say thank you to the people who have been encouraging me in this process. Your kind words mean the world to me! Thank you!
