You could be forgiven for thinking I’ve popped my clogs, given how long it’s been since I last posted. But no, I am still alive and kicking.*
I’ve currently engaged in Operation Get Featherfall Published. I won’t go into the precise details for fear of jinxing things but I have at least gone off my backside.
Last summer I was presented with an offer from a publisher which I showed to the nice people at The Society of Authors. Their response was to the point: “We’re a little concerned with some aspects of this.” They then dissected it, clause by clause.
The result? I stepped away and became agentless after four years.
But the good news is that there are publishers out there, good ones at that, who are happy to accept direct submissions from authors. And that’s the position I’m in at the moment.
*Is this tempting fate?
