Novel

After being stuck for weeks I had a breakthrough on the last chapter of the novel. *does little dance* It made me happy because now, I think, I have all the requirements to send it to a publisher. There are sixteen chapters total plus the epilogue.

Now a question. I know I have TDC readers in the UK, Spain, France, Italy, Germany and Canada. Is there anywhere else? I think one of the biggest selling points on this novel is that there's a market out there and, if I can convince the publisher to take a chance, there's a good chance it'll go overseas as well.
IF IT DOESN'T...I'll be willing to send copies to folks who ask. I'll likely set up a paypal account and would ask for shipping on the book plus the American purchase price which would be about six bucks. The only one I can do right off the top of my head is England and I think it would be about three pounds. Two dollars for every pound. Or would that be twelve? Oh well, you guys get the idea.

And I think I have to change Mandy's name to isolate this from the fan fiction piece totally because of the CSI/NCIS copyright issues. I've changed the dragons and humans already. Oh, and people watch the CSI shows in the book. So I hope that covers it. *grin*

Reader's location :)
Hi,

I live in the western part of Hungary. It's one of the countries of the EU. :) Even if you can't get your novel published, I'd be interested in reading it.

Re: Reader's location :)
Thanks so much. I'll add it to the list. And if the main publishing houses here in the states don't like it I might look into epublishing somehow. I'll post updates on here.

This is so great for you :)
Yeah it would be £3 for the book plus shipping to get it to the UK.
And they watch CSI in the book? That is so cool.
Just curious do you know yet if it's going to be hardback or paperback?
Can't wait ♥

They kinda watch CSI in the book. :)For a first time publishing effort it'll most likely be paperback. The hardbacks are so much more expensive to produce I have yet to see more than a couple first time authors in anything but paperback.
And it's good to know my math was right. I was going off of the exchange when I was there in September.

Maybe we could start a petition for the book to get published. With my other novel I thought Ro was going to go to New York and beat up the publishers when they said no. All I can really say is just keep your fingers crossed and it takes between four and six months to find out one way or the other.

*fingers crossed*

Hope all goes well with the publishers. You brave soul!


Shall I get my paypal account all ready for the payment?

And I want my copy signed :p

That's even if it doesn't get published...

Come up with any names for Mandy yet?

AAAnnnd, are you going to have to remove TDC from the net if it gets published?


Overseas or not, I've got my ways (dad's card on amazon.com...)



Question though, male/male or is it now m/f?


I think that's all my poor overworked brain can come up with for now...

Hey, they can only say no so many times. :)
Okay, okay. Signed it is. *grin* I suppose I should have offered that for the overseas readers as I'll likely be sending things out myself.
Not unless they make me. I'm going to do my best to keep TDC up for as long as possible.
Still m/m slash but seriously toned down. I think the most explicit thing I have is a human running his hand through his dragon's hair or sleeping on a shoulder. *sigh* It says something about the world we live in.
Although I suppose I could do a x-rated version, not have my dad edit it, and go through a porn publisher. *smirk*
Oh, and no new names for Mandy yet unless you count "Manda-Panda".
