. . . as if the world needs another yogi . . .
My intuition seems to be off lately. I sent out these stories that I felt sure would be picked up but they were all rejected so now I don’t know. I even had a dream that the second story was picked up over the first one. I’m at ends but I haven’t lost faith, which maybe very stupid in the end but one can’t truly fight their nature now can they.Great post, thanks for sharing. It was precisely what I needed.All the very best,Simone
Simone, thanks for your kind comment. I understand your difficulty in getting your work published. I have a question for you. What is your USP; your Unique Selling Proposition?In other words what can you do that stands out from the crowd? What makes your work different?Publishers are looking for something unique, which I think your material is (looked at from my very limited knowledge of your genre) but how are you selling yourself and your material to potential publishers?I may be incorrect here, but I'm attempting to be helpful, and I always think you have to have something unique to offer, a unique proposition . . something that will really sell. If you can think creatively around this subject matter you may come up with some ideas . . .Let me know what you think and any ideas you come up with. I have been involved in marketing and sales myself in the past, but not the publishing world. If you just need someone to communicate with and bounce ideas off please do so.All the best,Doug.
I was a wedding planner and a damn good one at that. I know how to give women what they want even before they know it themselves. I'm positive that will translate to my novels but I’m new to writing so I have decided to employ an editor to help me perfect my manuscript.Thanks for taking an interest, you are very kind.Take care.
Well Simone it seems to me that you have everything going for you. Good luck . . .. . . and please keep me informed as to how things unfold. All the best,Doug.
