I Want to Get Published

What do New York literary agents,editors and publishers look for in new writers? 134 People

    I've already written three books.

    Two are in a series, with my longtime friend, and the third is all me. I want one of them to get published so badly!

    NON Fiction

    I'm writing a book on health and fitness- I really want to get it published...a literary agent told me it was a great book- well written- good principles BUT- I'm not famous enough to get published...How messed up is that!

    Never Enough.

    I quote this Cure song all the time to my boyfriend when he jokingly accuses me of being high maintenance. The rejection slips I've received are either flat and cold or are telling me they just don't have enough space. There's never enough space. -Endless Meghan

    Horror Markets?

    It seems a lot of magazines that publish short horror are on backlog. And there aren't a lot of magazines that seem to publish short fiction without being an established writer anymore. An endless struggle this seems. -Endless

    This place only took a week to send my story around to four editors who all said no. Eight more will give me 16 and I will then learn to play "Hospital Roll Call" on the guitar and sing it like Lanegan. I'm starting to feel the discouragement at 7 rejections...
