Dear Fellow Author,
A few short years ago, I was asking myself many of those
same questions. I wanted to know how I could get my foot
in the publishing 'door'. I was curious about how I could
get my own books to sell well, and how I could get
readers to recognize my name as being synonymous with an
author they could trust.
I also wanted to know what I could do to improve my
writing to such a degree that editors would never
consider rejecting my stories.
That's when I learned that editors love to see
submissions from writers who have already had short
fiction published in other publications!
You see, for more than two years, I studied what the
editors wanted and what kinds of stories they would
accept. I interviewed editors and agents to learn about
their likes, dislikes and preferences. I asked magazine
publishers and feature editors what made them buy the
stories they chose. I attended conventions and seminars,
trying to figure out why some authors could sell anything
they wrote and others just kept collecting rejection
What I learned surprised me!
In fact, I think it will surprise you, too. You see, it
is true that almost anyone can write a story - but it
really does take something special to turn that story
into a paid publication credit that you can add to a
professional author's bio to further your career!
Tamara Anatolievna, Texas, USA writes:
I had been
struggling to get an editor interested in my
novel for two years. But after I'd read Lee's
book about selling short fiction, I took her
great advice about how and what I should submit.
I wrote and sold four short stories in just a
month. Once I'd added those publishing credits
into my cover letter, my novel sold straight
away! Thanks Lee!
Yvonne McSherry of Glasgow, Scotland writes:
I'd always thought nobody bought short stories
anymore. I considered writing them was a waste of
time and so I concentrated on my novels. That was
until I received a check for $2,000 for one short
story! I've since learned it's easy to make
thousands of dollars by selling and re-selling
short stories all over the world! It's just so
easy. Now editors stand up and take notice when I
send novel manuscripts to them. This book really
opened my eyes about my writing career.
