Have you ever had that moment where you feel on top of the world and then when reality hits you crash and burn to the ground? Well, that's been me for the past few weeks. The day after I wrote my last blog post something amazing happened, the universe said keep pushing forward. I received an email from one of those in between publishing companies, you know the one that's a mix of self-publishing and actually publishing.
As imagined, I was estatic! All my hard work and effort appeared to pay off. Then I received the contract. A few words to the wise, never give someone all the rights to your book. It's yours to own not someone else's. Besides requiring they have all the rights to my book I was going to have to pay around $4k to get this going. The payout didn't benefit me so I declined. Of course after that, I received 5 more rejection letters from other places and now I'm back to square one of trying to become published.
This process is arduous and exhausting in ever sense. But, here's to continuing to pursue my personal legend.
