Update on My Book

Since a few people have asked, here’s the latest on my book (which is an account of my mission in Bolivia).

A few weeks ago, I decided to send out queries to literary agents. I probably sent out 60 or so, just to people who said they would consider memoirs. To date I’ve had 5 positive responses (among a ton of rejections). 4 of those are still thinking about it, and one has already rejected it.

I figured that I needed to at least make one concerted attempt to get it published, and if nothing happens, I can at least say that I tried.

So, wish me luck. I have my fingers crossed.

  1. Good luck!

    Don’t be discouraged by those rejection slips. Message in a Bottle got rejected hundreds of times before it became a sensation!

    I’m not discouraged. Frankly, 5 positive responses is about 5 more than I expected. I like my book and think it’s worth publishing, but who knows?
