Comments for The Blog of Anya Harker http://www.anyaharker.com/wordpress Ramblings of the (hopefully) one day published YA author Sun, 26 Aug 2012 00:54:08 -0400 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1.18 Comment on Hardest Part of Being A Writer… by E.B. Black http://www.anyaharker.com/wordpress/?p=147#comment-772 Sun, 26 Aug 2012 00:54:08 +0000 http://www.anyaharker.com/wordpress/?p=147#comment-772 Your adventures in writing sound a lot like mine. I wrote a first book that I don’t often count because it was so bad and that I started when I was still a teen. I put my heart and soul into the second book and received sixty rejections. I had to shelve it because I wound up agreeing with the rejections I received and it sucked because I put all that hard work into it.

Good news though, I think my third book is the one. Not really querying it, mostly planning on self-pubbing and I feel really excited about it, so good luck to you as well.

I know how hard it is to do all that work!

Agents and publishers look at what will make the most money and what will sell. They are looking at the marketing aspect and right now with the economy a lot of companies are running scared. Hold on to the fact that there has been interest and right now isn’t the time, but there will be a time. :)

I began my journey in the writing world really at the end of last year/beginning of this year, and I, like you, have learned soooo much already. It’s definitely trying at times, but the writing community is just fantastic, and it’s so great to understand the industry better and better as each day wears on.

Here’s to an awesome year of manuscripts, queries, and agents!

Comment on Some of the greatest words ever… by lexcade http://www.anyaharker.com/wordpress/?p=136#comment-501 Tue, 29 May 2012 01:44:38 +0000 http://www.anyaharker.com/wordpress/?p=136#comment-501 well, the only non-form rejection I’ve gotten was the R&R from my dream agent. She told me I was a “writer to watch” and gave me some really good suggestions to strengthen the piece. I would take a billion of those.

Comment on The Writer’s Voice; Query & First 250 by Krista Van Dolzer http://www.anyaharker.com/wordpress/?p=116#comment-472 Sat, 19 May 2012 05:25:24 +0000 http://www.anyaharker.com/wordpress/?p=116#comment-472 Just wanted to circle back around here and let you know that your entry was on my short short list. I loved the idea of Merlin whisking a strong, modern girl back to King Arthur’s court to act as a foil to Guinevere, and I especially loved that she wasn’t so willing to go along with the plan:) That said, I’ve seen a ton of YA queries lately that revolve around the Arthurian legend, and I worried that our agents wouldn’t find this as original.

Best of luck to you and your manuscript. I truly hope you find your perfect agent match soon, because I would love to read this:)
