This is the second section of a multi-part blog post on the book publishing process as seen through a series of 14 GIFs.
You have finished a novel.
Only then do you find out that you have to find a literary agent. What the heck?
So you write your query letter.
And you obsess over it, even more than you did with your novel.
You finish the letter and send it out to agents. And you’re all ready. Alright, let’s get it on.
Then a couple of days go by and you’re waiting, waiting, waiting…
And time goes by so slowly.
And you get antsy all over.
But finally you hear from an agent and you’re all excited.
And you wonder what the reply says.
Ack! It’s a rejection. But it’s your first one so you’re all blasé.
But then you get a few more rejections and you’re ready to rumble.
But, then, months later an agent calls! And she absolutely loves your work! She wants to represent you! And inside you’re happy all over.
When he says he wants to represent you, you just want to hug him to pieces!
But instead you just nod your head calmly and say yes. Thank you.
And now what? The hunt for a book publisher is on . . .
