update on The Paul Yandell Book Project

Postby Norm » Fri Sep 13, 2013 11:07 am

Getting something published is a grueling process.

You put in the hours writing, editing and organizing your material then you have to sell your idea in what’s called a “query letter.” If you can sell them on that, then they ask for a proposal. That’s where you describe your project in more detail and try to convince them that your project is worth their time.

Waiting for a response can take months. I’ve pitched to, I believe, four publishers.

The fourth one just asked to see my actual manuscript.

Paul Yandell, Second to the Best, … a Sideman’s Chronicle

Am I excited? Ooooo you bet your sweet Bippy I am!

It ain’t over ‘till it’s over but it’s looking mighty fine right now!
...that's how it looks to me...The opinion expressed above is my own and does not necessarily reflect the views of this station. Your mileage may vary...
