I am delighted that Mrs. Lion has a new job. It’s with a large company with a full menu of benefits and opportunities for advancement. She feels that a month is a long time to search for work. My job hunts generally lasted six months or more. The last time I was hired, it was four months after being told I would get the job until all the t’s were crossed. I know my lioness will do wonderfully in her new position.
I’ve been struggling with finding a literary agent. It’s a nearly impossible task. The average agent receives about 300 queries from prospective clients each month. I got smarter this time. Instead of querying randomly chosen agents, I looked for the ones who sold books that resemble mine. Will it work? Who knows? For all I know, I write dime-a-dozen crap that no one wants to publish.
I’ve been attending a few webinars on writing and acquiring agents. Maybe they will help. I could self-publish, but that’s a bad idea. For one thing, I have no way to promote the book or get it to reviewers. Traditional publishing is the way to go.
An alternative is to write sexually provocative stuff. I could self-publish that and sell it via the blog. My very first try was a spanking book. It was hot but didn’t take me where I wanted to go. I suppose if I get discouraged enough I can go that route.
Anyway, I’m keeping very busy with my efforts at self promotion. Thanks for listening.
