Okay so this is like really wierd, but like last year in April I wrote an e-mail to the author of The 13th Reality, James Dashner, and a year later he e-mailed me back! He might even take a look at my story!
I think that's amazingness! XD

i'm always too self-conscious to email authors ... i feel guilty; they're probably weighed down with emails from ppl going "CAN YOU READ MY BOOK?? PLEEEEEEASE???" sooo ... yeah. oh well. maybe i should start. >< i'm not getting much progress in the publishing world. *sigh*

i might start self-publishing though. if i self-published a book, would you guys buy it? just out of curiosity ...


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Brigid, it wouldn't matter if you self-published or got it professionally done. I would buy it the first day it came out. At midnight. You're that amazing of an author.


message 11: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller i would too!

I don't even pay attention to weather books are self published or published by a massive company. I really don't. I mean, they are books, right? They contain a story, right? Yes? Well, then I'll read them.


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah, me too!

The only time that I even look at the copyright page (where the publisher's info is) is if I'm citing a book, and then it's usually a reference of some sort, and not fictional.

This time around, (the 11th time) I'm shortening the chapters. Once again.

T.O.L.I. (Taleoflostink) | 1770 comments err...i would HATE that


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah, I am so sick of it. After this stuff is done, i'm going to apply to a few publishing companies, and if they turn me down, I'm just going to put it away for awhile.


message 32: by T.O.L.I. (new)

Paige Miller oh God.


message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

Guess what?


I e-mailed Neal Shusterman.


And guess what?



he e-mailed back. but he didn't answer my question which was stupid. And he actually read the e-mail personally, but didn't answer my question, which was stupid. And if you e-mail him, and ask him to read your stories, he won't. He answered that question.
But he didn't answer my question on advice to get published! sheesh!

well ... it's understandable, though. authors get a lot of emails saying "please read my story!!" they get tired of it. it sucks, but that's the way it is. *sigh*

YAY!! that would be SOO cool!!! i'd buy a copy and cherish it forever, and keep rereading and rereading and rereading it. and i'd buy copies for all my friends and say "You HAVE to read this or DIE!!!" XD
