If you said it means there's only 125 days left to RT, then you'd be right!!



To add a New Years Resolution twist to this post, I have decided that when it comes up on the site, I am signing up for an agent appointment! I really want to get my book out there! Although lately, it's been hard. I can't seem to find agents anymore who promote for my line of writing. I know I've barely scratched the surface since other authors say they've received 100s if not 1000s of rejections, but it makes me wonder if that was all for one book? Several? Did they query agents twice for two different books?

Those factors I never really got. So I've decided that I will try talking to an agent face to face--must be crazy since I get so nervous during interviews and what not--and try conveying how awesome my book is, since I can't seem to do that in a query letter. I struggle to get the right words in without giving away too much or not enough! Will have to get back on that soon!

My other resolution is, that if that part does end up failing, my getting an agent. I have decided I will start getting my book ready for self publishing.

It's my hope that I can get my book out there sometime next year. If not the very beginning of 2014! Or even better, if I land an agent, just whenever its ready according to the publisher! 

Wish me luck!
