A fascimile score card from a Yankees-Orioles game on 9/21/2008

So, here’s the score so far for the first ten publishers I’ve sent my novel to.

Two partial contract offers where I would pay something to have the book published.

Two rejections

Two “further look” responses where they wanted to see more of the book (which is better than wanting to see less of it).

And four that I have yet to hear from

So, if I count partial offers and further looks as half a point each, the score so far is Publishers 2, Author 2. It’s a tie game,with four innings to go.

It’s only one game, with more to go. I’m keeping the faith.


About huckfinn47

I taught high school English for 32 years, all at Robinson High School in Fairfax, VA. My students called me "Mr. V," and I was fortunate to have some terrific young people in my classes. I have made contact with some of them, particularly on Facebook, and enjoy seeing what they're up to. My other nickname, given to me by our then assistant pastor Jim Vaught, is Lieutenant Dan, after the Gary Sinise character in Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies. I never got anywhere near military service, so the name is somewhat ironic. I greatly admire our troops and respect their sacrifices. On the Wings of Morning is my first novel worth talking about.
