I am an "aspiring author".
A couple months back I finished my first full length novella (totaling somewhere around 36,000 words.)
I sent the novel to the first applicable publishing house I found (one that accepts books from "nobodies" like myself.)
The book got refused within days.
I then sent the book to another publishing house (this one sounding better overall.)
I was refused within a month.
I don't know if there is a problem with my story overall, if the word count is bad (i.e. too short), if my writing just plain stinks, or if I just need to keep persisting...
I am trying to trust that God is in control. This book will (eventually) get published, if God wants it to.
While I feel this story has a lot to offer people... while I hope that I can change lives through my book... God knows whether it is meant to be, or not.
