Sold My Manuscript To Transworld!
My greatest dream was to be a published novelist. I spent nine years trying to get an agent or publisher interested in my work but all I got was rejection upon rejection. It is very hard to stay positive and grateful when you have been rejected more than two hundred times! Often it made me doubt the quality of my work; maybe I’d written a truly awful book. I wrote lots of affirmations, visualized and daydreamed. Nothing happened. I wanted to give up several times but I just wasn’t able to do that either. I tried letting go, but that was incredibly difficult because I was always thinking about it. I knew I had written a fantastic manuscript; why didn’t any agent or publisher think the same?
2016 would be the tenth year of attempts and I don’t know how it happened or how I was able to let go, but today I received an email from a literary agent I wrote to some time ago. He loved my manuscript. “I believe we have a bestseller here,” he wrote!!! With his agency representing me I have just signed a contract with Transworld Publishers and received a huge advance payment!! Even though I shouldn’t be surprised because hey, it’s The Secret, it always works, I just cannot believe that my greatest dream has come true.
All I can say is thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
