Last week I read a very inspiring – and intimidating – interview with Kresley Cole on Dear Author, regarding the sale of her first manuscript.
After reading the opinions of dozens of published authors, publishers, and agents, I have decided to attempt a similar, though perhaps more manageable, approach. I think I’ll test the waters with ten active inquiries at a time.
Today I’m working on my Spreadsheet for Success, as I’ve oh-so-cleverly dubbed it, composed of the contests I’m entering over the next two months, the agents I’d love to work with, and the houses I dream of being published under. Take a look at the screen shots for my basic outline.
Wish me luck. I’ll definitely need it.
