Packed the whole thing up into a single file and sent it to my writing coach, along with the seven photos for the sample chapter. Query letter’s done. All that’s left is to wait and see what kinds of edits he comes back with…!
I’m way excited at the prospect of being done with the proposal. Of course, that just means I get to start working on the book again. There’s a lot that I can’t yet work on, but there are a lot of stories that I can write up as is. And, of course, I can get back to scheduling interviews, etc. Plenty to do, even while waiting interminably for publishers to get back to me with rejections.
I should ask my coach how long it typically takes to sell a book. If it’s a year or more, then I could quite conceivably have the manuscript complete before I manage to sell it.
