I'm busy in revision land, so I just wanted to throw out some encouraging shout-outs. I started reading the blogs of most of the bloggers below Pre-Agents/Pre-Publication, and now they all have contracts and/or books released.
You never know when it'll happen to you!
So here they are: Proof that writers CAN get pubbed. :-)
Jody Hedlund I started reading her blog before she had an agent. Now she's on the bestseller list!
Katie GanshertI started reading her blog pre-Agent too, back when it was called Brain Throw-up (which I still think is genius! lol)
Anita HowardBeen reading her blog since before I had any commenters on my blog!
Elana JohnsonYep, before she had an agent or a contract. Now look what she has coming out!
Julie JarnaginI met her after she'd received her contract but have to do a shout-out because her debut just released!
Kristen PainterWas reading her pre-contract; now she has books coming out everywhere!
I feel like I'm missing someone, so if it's you, send me a message and I'll get a link up. Can I blame my forgetfulness on too much chocolate and not enough sleep?
Have you known anyone who got the call? Does getting published feel impossible or do you see that it can be done?
