Okay, so I sent out six book proposals expecting to get six rejections about six months after I inquired. I got one back in just a week and they are interested. Can you believe that? I’m thrilled and happy. Even if they reject it after I send the completed manuscript, at least I got a “maybe I am interested”.
This is what keeps you going and writing, as well as comments from family, friends and other authors. We have to support each other so we keep the craft alive.
About Sharron Grodzinsky
Author, blogger and professional seeker of new adventures. After spending many years in the healthcare field, I now devote my energies to writing. I've finished my first book, "Waiting on the Outside" (The story of my sons' journey to incarceration) and my second book, "Surviving La Bestia". (Two immigrant children make a perilous journey over two thousand miles trying to get to America.) Both are available on Amazon.
Writing is not an easy task, but if you feel the absolute necessity to write, then you are a writer! I am writing my third book, "The Hanging Girl". I am also partnering with Jon Ponder, CEO of Hope for Prisoners, to bring his story, "CONverted", A story of transformation and hope to light. I hope to have both completed by the end of the year. A little ambitious I think, but if you don't aim for the sky you won't land there.
