Lately, I have been so discouraged with trying to get my novel published that I have been fighting daily to query.
So, today I sat down to try again the the 30 minutes I had before I had to start dinner and the first agent I came upon offered up encouragement. I clicked on her site and the subtitle read, “A published author is an amateur who didn’t quit. Don’t quit.”
This hit me hard as this was EXACTLY what I needed to hear. It spoke to me as if a God-thing. The agent’s name is Mandy Hubbard and her site is http://mandyhubbard.livejournal.com
I have been questioning if this whole writing thing is worth the time, effort, and emotional toll it takes on me when I pour my heart and soul into something I truly believe in. I don’t deal well with rejection and I’m just tired of being told, “No, sorry, not good enough.”
But Ms. Hubbard’s site was wonderful. I queried her immediately as I thought, “Maybe she’s the one, the one God brought me to.”
Only time will tell if she likes my work or not. Regardless, her words touched me and I was happy to promote her book on my website as part of her contest. I hope she succeeds immensely as one day I know I will too.
