Now that I had all the major parts done (query, hook, mini-synopsis & synopsis), the next logical step of progression was the submission. The first time around, as you can well imagine, was absolutely mind numbing. You can read about it in greater detail at the tag for Line 21, but the short version was that I did a wicked amount of research in a couple of writer's forum and queried both publishers and agents. The end result, as you're no doubt aware, can found at my book blog and at my publisher.
This particular phase lasted about a year.
As for ASWR, I believe the querying/submission process will be much easier for a couple of reasons.
1} I know what genre my novella is in.
2} I'm peddling a novella, instead of a novel.
Because I'm peddling a novella, zero agents will be interested in it, and because I know what genre it is (paranormal/fantasy) it will help me narrow my focus on what publisher (including my own) I should query/submit to.
The one thing that both of these projects will have in common are their own pages on this blog. I had a lot of fun tracking my querying journey with Line 21 and I intend to have the same kind of fun tracking the querying journey with ASWR.
Beyond that particular issue, I will be charting a different path on the blog with ASWR. That is to say, that unlike the various posts I wrote for Line 21 that chronicled my every move, from asking my readers questions about certain aspects of women's appearances to writing about how to write a good synopsis; or even the slightly hilarious posts I wrote about self publishing Betrayed!, I intend to explore more of the content and the mindset behind writing ASWR.
I think the only way one can really grow as a writer is to challenge yourself to write something that is both within and outside of your perceived comfort zone. And because ASWR falls within that hybrid, it's something that I really want to explore, because after all, isn't exploring one's head and asking pointed questions about yourself and your writing the one key component that helps you win the latest round of the querying game?
