Hello Turning Grace Fans!
In my last post, I discussed my decision to begin a journey down the road to finding a literary agent to represent me. Well, here’s an update:
After sending out queries and pieces of my manuscript to over 20 agents, not hearing anything back from 95% of them, and receiving 5 rejection letters, I decided that I was too impatient and too prideful to have my books unavailable to potential readers.
Don’t misunderstand. I still dream of having a literary agent help me find a traditional publisher, but why deny myself of all the self-publishing benefits while I wait? The whole reason I took them off the market was because I’d read that there are some agents and publishers who refuse to work with indie authors and their already-published books. While this does make sense, I feel like I should still try to represent myself and my work. Maybe I’ll get lucky and the right person will read one of my books. Who knows?
So, I decided to put The Turning Series back up on Amazon (only), and Escaping Grace and Finding Grace got a beautiful makeover! The new book covers are awesome and all three books are now available for eBook download or paperback copy. Check out my Books section to download now!
In the meantime, I will continue to send queries and manuscripts in hopes of someone liking what they see. I didn’t come this far to give up now!
