I know this is a long shot, and I don’t hold any pretenses of even coming close to winning. But my Critic’s ReportContinue reading “A Contest and a Giveaway”

Five Months After I published My Book. So, What Now?
So what now, indeed? That is the question that has been dancing in my head since the Holidays. What more can I do to promote my book? I’ve done promotions.

The journey here certainly has been an interesting one. Not wanting to repeat everything I wrote in my other posts (forContinue reading “I self-published a book!”
I’m Pulling the Plug
That’s it. Time’s up. I’m pulling the plug on the life support holding my dream alive of having this book traditionally published. Everyone answered no or didn’t bother to answer at all, which in the publishing world means no nonetheless. Only one publisher has not answered, but, uh, I’m not holding my breath on thatContinue reading “I’m Pulling the Plug”
So I Submitted Twice to the Same Publisher!
I know. Stupid, careless mistake or like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman would say: “Big mistake! Big. Huge.” And I know what you must be thinking: But Tania, how can you have submitted twice to the same place if you have that Query Tracker thingy? Good question! The thing is, this particular publisher is not on Query Tracker.Continue reading “So I Submitted Twice to the Same Publisher!”
Three Months Left
Three months till my deadline. At this juncture, it’s become clear my book won’t find a home with any publisher.

Self-publishing isn’t the end of the road;Continue reading “Three Months Left”
