I write, and have been trying to get published for some time. I come from a small country called New Zealand where the internal opportunities are very limited. It is also difficult to get published outside the country. After reading ‘The Secret’ book and watching the movie I erected a vision board and tried to feel that I had already achieved the goal. Having finished a novel in February I sent out my first submission. I kept visualising and feeling the feelings of getting a contract.
On July 13th, Black Friday, no less, I received a polite rejection. On August 4th, however, an overseas publisher approached me. I went from being ‘rejected’ to being ‘requested’ in a few weeks! I checked out the publishing company with a successful local author who used them. He said they were a great company and has kept me up-to-date with information on them. He thinks that after 10 years of writing he has finally broken into the international market. I am doing it with my first book.
