Why I am publishing MAIDEN!

It took me roughly four years (on and off) to write the first draft of MAIDEN. Another year later, and I had a final draft I was confident enough with to send to agents. A lot has happened in the last two years:

  • 6 writers conferences
  • 4 face to face agent story pitches
  • 57 queries to agents
  • 6 queries to independent publishing houses
  • 8 requested manuscripts
  • 8 rejections

Each meeting, each conference, every rejection and every re-write has been a learning experience. I truly hoped to get a publisher for this story, but it didn’t happen…and I’m okay with that. My story, my way. A story for my daughters told just the way I want it told. And thanks to advancements in technology, I am also able to share the story with others. I am very, very excited!
