Notice she says it will be 2 years before your book will be published. That’s if it is published at all. Why not self-publish if you believe the book is ready?
I had this interesting email.
I’ve written a thriller. I worked on it for a few years with an editor who said it was ready to submit. However, following lots of submissions but no requests for the full MS I began to work with another editor. The two are like chalk and cheese and I`m now in a quandary as to the way forward. Is this something you can help with?
There aren’t any easy answers here. You’re dealing with a massive unknown – the reactions of the publishers and agents you submitted to.
No news is… no news
It’s possible that your manuscript is perfectly publishable in terms of writing standard, but not what agents and publishers are looking for in other ways. You might not be on trend, or you might be too close to a trend they have decided will soon be over (even if it won’t).
