Tip of the Day: Asking your manpanion every day "Why hasn't anyone bought my book yet?" won't make anyone buy your book.
As Miss Recently Repped, I feel I must give you a glimpse into what my life is like. It is very glamorous, as I'm sure you can imagine, full of chocolate chips straight from the bag and couch-laptop sessions. And what goes through my brain is even MORE thrilling!
Why hasn't anyone bought my book yet? Does it suck? Well, it can't suck that bad because no one has rejected it yet either. But it's not at auction or on its way to B&N in a big cardboard display, so maybe it kind of sucks -- or it could be kind of good, but not good enough. Or maybe the piles of other books to be read are just way above mine in the editor's office, or maybe the editors have a headache or the plague and haven't been able to read for a while or they just got one glass eye or something and need to wait for their depth perception to adjust so they can read from a computer screen again.
Then I'll turn off my left brain for a while and do some revisions on the next manuscript, then check my email and the same old same old flips through my head again.....
How about all you? What does through YOUR brain while you're waiting to hear back from editors?
