I have written two books. The first has been rejected by one publisher and is now with a second. They said I would hear from them ‘in due course’ and 4-6 weeks was mentioned. It is now 9 weeks andI am unsure whether to get in touch with them. What would you do? The second book I am just finishing my corrections and final read through. I haven’t thought of self publishing . If the book is not good enough for a publisher, I am not sure I want it published.
Maybe in the US, there's more self-publishing going on, not sure about the UK. I've seen many that read/look as pro as the NY big boys. I heard so many rejection stories that I never even attempted the majors. You need to acquire a reputable agent if you go that route. The big guys only work through agents, at least in the US. Never quit and always believe in yourself. Self-publishing is becoming more accepted every day. Spyder
