Loreseeker and the Lords of Night ~UPDATE!~

Well, as some of you are aware, I sent off the Loreseeker and the Lords of Night story I had been posting in this blog to a publisher. I received a letter back today stating they had rejected the proposal, so, unless I elect to publish the story through a vanity press, it will not be a book anytime soon.

This letter marks my fifteenth rejection letter.

Ah well. Back to the drawing board, as they say.

    You might seriously consider trying Lulu.com. I know it’s not the ideal way to go, but I know of at least two individuals who started out with a vanity press – one of them was with Lulu – and were picked up by traditional publishers. The general consensus among the few published authors I know is that this seems to be the way to go now as the publishers can assess your writing and marketability without any investment or loss on their part. If they like what they see, they will pluck up whoever it is. So as much as I’ve loathed to promote vanity presses in the past, it seems a path that may be necessary to trod.

    I also know of two small print publishers whom you might want to contact. I will also gladly work with you free of charge on the editing.

    Starving Artist isn’t just a cliqued sterotype, it’s a way of life for most aspiring artists of any type.

    I’m not surprised that corporate publising houses would make you actually prove you can sell books now, rather than risking their own money. The motto of Corporate America: “If you can’t take it with you, Don’t Go”-paraphrased from a Terry Pratchett book.

    Keep trying though. After all, someone let that woman publish those Twilight books…

        I don’t care how much license you get from fiction…. Vampires should ….NOT…. Sparkle. Ever.

        I’m fine with them surviving sunlight, being supernatural, being born from a disease, or being just plain unexplainable…. But they should not sparkle.

        If that steaming pile can get published, banging your head on a keyboard and calling it the Necronomicon can get published.

        I’ve not read the story, but I’ve known Wondergood for many years. I’d lay odds it’s at least on par with what hits the shelves these days.

    Sorry to hear that,

    Don’t give up. You never know when something will hit.

    All Best.

      Thanks, Alan. I don’t plan to give up. I’ve got several options with the story, as Skatha pointed out, plus I’ve got an entirely new story that I can send off, as well.

      Going to try both avenues and see what happens.

      Thanks for commenting.
