One giant leap for author-kind
Today I mailed my very first novel pitch! Eeeeeeeeek!
I veered from my original plan of looking for a literary agent, and found a great local publisher that seems to want material like mine.
They requested a cover letter, synopsis and a few sample chapters — very rare for a publisher to want unsolicited chapters, so I was thrilled — so I got it all ready and packaged it up.
I was really nervous as I dropped it in the box! I know this could be a long process, and I need to be prepared for rejection, but I am so, so, so, so hopeful.
And now I play the waiting game. Geez, it seems like my whole life right now is waiting — babies, books, etc.
P.S. Yes, I may have kissed it before sealing it. But I made sure my lipstick didn’t leave a mark. It’s not that kind of book, haha.
