Are there any authors here who have gone the traditional publishing route = gotten an advance on a book?

Wanna talk?

I'd be interested in the same info. I have a non-fiction book I'm trying to get published and am looking for an agent. I have a proposal already finished.

Have you gone agent hunting yet?

Book is completed except for any editing required by a publisher. I've found a couple agents but haven't heard back from them

The way I understand it....rejections are what you want. The more rejections you et the more likely you are to be picked up.

What is your target number of rejections?

As many as I need before someone says yes.

I'm totally self-published and I've been in the industry for a looonngg time.

Just be careful of vanity publishers who want money up front.

Also, if you are fortunate enough to be picked up by a traditional publisher, you'll have to do nearly all the promotional and marketing work yourself. It's just the way things are now.

Formatting and publishing your own book is so easy now, and you have total control - it's well worth looking into

I like doing hard things. I like even more having done something hard.
