Existential Crisis Abated? Four’s a Charm?

Could four be the Charm!

After whining to my writing group about my existential writing crisis, I got home yesterday to this response to my 4th query to Untreed Reads Publishing. They get 50% of sales and help with cover, layout, proofreading and promotion. Could I be looking at a contract soon? Jury’s still out. I thanked her immensely and said I’d be patient. I’d better get on with those interviews and ‘let the book write me.’ There a few more chapters to complete. But oh, how a few hopeful words can change your mood!ba

Hi, Pat,

So nice to hear from you. How impressive—the synopsis of your story, your accomplishments, your media savvy, and your commitment and energy to your projects.

I am forwarding your email to Jay Hartman, our Editor-in-Chief, and resident editorial, literary, and technology GURU. He is the one who makes the final decisions on submissions.

We’ve had so many submissions that it is taking about 60 days (sometimes longer, sometimes shorter) for him to reply with a yay or nay. I’ll ask him to please move this up the list.

We’ll reply soon.

Thanks for remembering us and for exploring publishing with us!
