What do I say to an awesome author when new authors are so difficult to place? “Gee your writing is so good, but no way will I be able to place it.”
That has been the reality here for a bit. And I’m beginning to feel like the proverbial broken record, but the fact is new authors are tough to place. Exceptional as they may be.
Do I tell them to give up and keep the day job?
Absolutely not. Dig in harder and most important of all—keep writing. Keep doing what you feel called to do.
A writing career rarely happens overnight. It takes work, very hard work, and perseverance.
So what do I say to a potential client? Keep writing, never give up. If you are called to write, persevere until it hurts. But never give up.
