¡Viva la Revolución!

(This post brought to you by the inspiration and revolutionary cake of L. T. Host, the Jokerman font, and That Thing Where I DrawPhotoshop)

I'm seeing a pattern. My first novel generated no requests. My second novel is getting partial requests, but no fulls (so far). I fear my third novel will generate fulls but no offers--those will come with my fourth novel.

And then what? Will I have to write yet another novel before I get a book deal? To that I say: NO!

Down with our (imaginary) oppressors! We will not have to write three more novels. THIS is the novel that will be published.

No more slush pile! Representation for everyone!


* CARPE EDITIO: Seize the book deal (or, if you want to be literal, "the publishing of a book.").

I hope you get some request for full manuscripts. This time, not next time.

Fingers crossed for you.

That ink puddle is pretty scary.

I predict the third will sell. Requests for partials are nothing to sniff at!

To me, "Carpe Editio" looks like "Seize the Editor!" which sounds like something a really, really uninteresting supervillain would say.

Thanks for the encouragement, folks. I think I have a plan. The "third novel" will really be the second novel in revision.

Carpe editio! Representation for everyone!

Carpe editio! And good luck with your revisions!

BTW - that beta reading thing goes both ways, if you need another one.
