There is a definite value in staying the course, and working hard to find opportunities, especially in publishing. But there’s also a big component that is out of one’s control: being in the right time and place.
So How Goes Trying To Get Published, Victoria: the “Full Manuscript Request” Edition
Yesterday I hit a milestone: 100 queries sent so far this year!
Life continues post Pitch Wars and it’s inspired me to start a new series: So How Goes Trying To Get Published, Victoria

36 was the year of setting a really good foundation for getting published. Here’s to 37!
There’s lots of work left to do, but I’m proud of myself for doing this much so far.

A few resolutions for the blag!
Querying is scary. But not for the obvious reasons.
