And so it goes

Got yet another rejection slip. *sigh*

  1. Sorry to hear of your rejection slip. But don’t give up. Keep working at it.

    My first book was rejected by 15 publishers before I found one with whom I could work.

    After carefully and prayerfully reviewing that book, I decided it did not have broad market appeal. But I found out I could invest a little money to hire a publisher who would charge for services then print on demand and do a good bit of the marketing. Essentially, if 400 copies sell, I make my money back and every book above 400 that sells earns me from $3-$7 per copy.

    I figure for books that have either a limited “niche market” (selling 500-1000 copies) or big sellers, this is the way to go. Conventional publishers are great for boosting your reputation (and I’m hoping to go with one for a novel I’m writing), but they aren’t the answer for every book.

    Anyway, whatever you decide, keep writing. It’s a worthy pursuit whether you reap material benefits from it or not.

  2. That just puts you one closer to acceptance. Hang in there.
