I am asking myself the same questions a lot lately. Is it time for a new agent? Or time to go back to being un-agented? Or should I have faith my current agent will make a big move for me soon?
I was signed over two years ago based on ONE SMOKING HOT FAIRY TAIL, which I ended up self publishing after I was told it could not be sold. I really wanted it to go to TOR or DAW. Not sure why it didn't. I never really heard what those publishers thought. I never really heard which publishers read it. Not a lot of feedback at all...
I have another book series that has been waiting to be published... a Viking Age Dark Fantasy Historical Fiction Horror Thriller.... multi-genre extravaganza! I expected it to be picked up already. I has brought me lots of attention from TV and Movie people.... so why not a publisher?
So I'm left wondering, do I need a new agent to try and sell this one? Or do I self publish this one too. I'm am not sure how much longer I can wait. I am missing the mark here.
I really would love a traditional publisher. A big house. One that I can learn from. I would like the kind of treatment my mentor and friend, Jonathan Maberry gets from his publishers. So...yeah...
