You’ve written a book. Congrats!
You’ve let other people read it. Good work!
You’ve listened to their critiques, changed what needed changing, kept what made your book yours. Super!
You’ve sent it out to agents/publishers. Well done!
You’ve waited…and waited…and waited. (This is really REALLY hard.) Hang in there!
You have someone interested! SUPER CONGRATS!
They want to make changes….
This can now make or break a connection. It is the agents/publisher’s job to create the best SELL-ABLE book. It is your job, as the writer, to make the best WRITTEN book. Sometimes these don’t match up. Of course the best thing is if you can find a way to do both, but what if you can’t?
What do you do?
Well, I ask what do YOU suggest? I’m stumped. 🙂
