“Don’t give up before the miracle happens.”
– Fannie Flagg
Today I have a short post. Short but oh so very Sweet!
I have just signed a contract with a literary agent to represent me! This is a huge step toward getting my book, A Woman’s Guide to Transformation, published.
This has been a huge process. I started looking for a literary agent well over a year ago. Let me assure you that writing the book was a piece of cake compared to finding an agent in this new, hugely competitive publishing environment. The process requires an incredibly thick skin and tenacity beyond words.
There were many times that I considered giving up my dream and going the “easier” route of a digital book. But my dream, top of my bucket list was to be published in the traditonal sense, with a hard copy of my book in my hand. It is a long process, and I’m not published yet, but having a supportive agent is a massive step in that direction.
Thank you Owen Burnham! (My new wonderful, supportive enthusiastic agent!) Please visit him at his website. And if you are an author looking for an enthusiastic agent, please take the time to send Owen a note.
I’m going to close with an appropriate song by an artist I have always liked. Curtis Mayfield encouraging us to Keep on Keeping on!
Please write and let me know how you keep on keeping on. And as always, thank you for taking the time to visit, I appreciate it.
