My Ranking Points
I’ve written a novel, and I’ve even got a publishing contract. But the publisher that said they were interested are regarded as a ‘vanity publisher’, so I’ve declined the contract.
I don’t have an agent, and I probably won’t get one, because nobody really shows interest in agenting a twelve-year old girl. Do you have any tips on getting published?
Whoa, that’s pretty amazing that you even got a publisher.
Look, @Bluefurr, what you’ve achieved is amazing!
But as they are vanity publishers, I respect your wise decision to decline, as I’m making the assumption that you would want to get your book published on merit, and not because of wealth.
Keep working at it, and one day someone will see your talent and publish your book for real. In the meantime though, as an aspiring writer myself, would you like me to edit it for you? No pressure, I’m just here to help. 😊
Thanks for the idea, but I a lot of ADULTS (@angelicanne) are looking at my work, including my principal and my teacher, all of the people in my class, my friends, librarians and parents. I’ve got really good feedback (and, yes, a little bit of things to touch up), and I’m not looking for more proofreaders at the moment, especially ones I don’t know in real life. so thank you for the suggestion, but no. I also appreciate the support, @princezzdot.
You’re welcome, @Bluefurr! I was just trying to help, and I hope that you keep improving. 😊
@bluefurr Ok ok ok ok,I will chill, XD (Sorry LOL) your idea is probably really amazing,IDK I was steamed yesterday (OK nvm IK I was on my period *Cries inside* XD) but seriously I don’t mean any harm to anyone and honestly I cant actually say much because Im only 13 myself………. heh heh,I guess maybe its because I doubt my own ability to write a novel 😐 maybe I could if I tried but right now I am just so focused on my grade eight humanities homework. Uhm anyways good luck on your novel and maybe you will get it published
@bluefurr Nice cover! Can’t wait to read the book, good luck on publishing it because if anyone can do it you totally can. Also, don’t forget to follow your dreams! Sounds like a suspenseful book, when is it gonna be released!
Hey, @bluefurr, you are so talented! I have been writing a book, and I dont think I will get a publisher. You wont have a problem getting a better publisher!
Keep writing, maybe someday you’ll see your book published.
@bluefurr Wow that is an amazing achievement. Only being 12 myself i couldn’t do anything as great s that very well done! Very wise decisions not to go with the vanity publisher we deffo do not want to be paying. Just keep on writing and ill visit your website too! Eventually someone will publish your novel and when they do i will definitely buy it! Even if it is in years to cocme! I am writing a novel too but it wont be as good as yours
Wow i just visited your webiste it is very interesting plot definitely something i would read! Keep it going !!! 🙂
