Finishing my first novel was just the beginning. I’m at that point in my process now that I have to get out there, to really focus on what makes my book special, what makes it sale-worthy, and why an agent would want to take a chance on a previously unpublished author.
It’s a humbling and daunting process. I’m learning a lot about myself, and about the industry. I’m just grateful that I have a mentor who knows the ropes and who can remind me that, this too shall pass. It’s not enough to have talent, but having talent makes it much easier.
I just have to be peristent through this part of it.
