Thanks for checking out my new blog. Finite Language is a place where I can review books, interview authors and generally blow off the steam, built up in the general chaos of writing a book and trying to get it published. I have learned so much over the past six months, including the main one, writing your story is just the beginning of the saga unless you get incredibly lucky. There's a lot of hard work and heartbreak that goes on behind the scenes of any book looking to get noticed in a very crowded market. Trying to get a literary agent or picked up by the Big Six of publishing is next to impossible for a first time author now-a-days. This leaves independent authors aka, 'Indies' or getting picked up by a small firm These are the strongest options for a debut novel, if you're not a household name already, like an athlete, talk show host, or a black mark on society such as anyone from the Jersey Shore or a Kardashian.
It has been an exciting six months as I wrote my first book 'Wolf Song' and realized how much more I had to do after it was completed. The book is now at the editors and getting ready for me to submit it to small publishing houses So come along for the ride, I'll introduce you to some authors and maybe we'll both learn something in the process. In the mean time, buckle up, I am sure it will be a bumpy ride as I try to hold on and accomplish a life long dream!
