Chasing my crazy dream in the writing world…


BTC logo




When you’re new to both the writing and publishing world there are a lot of mysteries. At first you may question how to craft the perfect query or write a successful synopsis. After you’re a little more seasoned, you may wonder about the correct format for submitting a full manuscript or how to approach revisions.


But even after you’re educated about the writing process and think you know a lot about publishing, there are still mysteries that remain. Things like: What really goes on during the submission process? Or what role does an Acquisitions Editor play at a publishing house? You may wonder how an editor decides on a revise & resubmit or what role an agent plays in a book auction.


In BEHIND THE CURTAIN I’m going to peel back some of those veils of secrecy. Share with both new and seasoned writers what goes on behind the scenes. Every month there will be a new installment that I hope will both educate and create a better understanding of both the writing and publishing process.


So stop by the third Wednesday of every month and check out what’s BEHIND THE CURTAIN. I promise it will be a fun and informative new series!


Do you have something about the writing or publishing world that you’d like to know more about? If so, please leave a comment and I will do my best to try and include in the series!

    I think it would be interesting to know more about what happens once an editor decides they want a book. Do they let the agent know they are taking it to acquisitions? Does every book have to go through a committee? How long is it between deciding she wants the book and actually making a written offer?
    Also, it would be interesting to know on average how much editing happens between the original MS and the final printed book. I know this is different for each book, but can generalities be made?
    Then, I’d also like to know more about how publishers promote debut authors and also about how authors have successfully promoted themselves.
    Thanks! Love your blog!
