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 “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.
