Hi Everly! Thanks so much for stopping by. Tell us about the process of getting your debut published. We'd also love to hear any advice you have for those of us still working toward our publication dreams.
The process of getting my debut published can be summarized in a sequence of numbers: three agents, two major revisions, and one publisher.
It was definitely the three agents part that surprised me! Each of them was amazing and shaped my publication journey in positive ways. If I could go back in time, I wouldn’t change the process, even though it was a long one. The changes I made to the manuscript along the way helped the book evolve and helped me learn as a writer.
Working toward your publication dreams takes courage and determination, especially when things don’t go as planned. It’s okay to feel sad when a rejection comes in, but don’t let it define who you are. As my journey shows, there are different paths to publication.
Great advice! Thanks so much for joining us!
About FEAR MY MORTALITY & EVERLY FROST
Fear My Mortality by Everly Frost
Publication Date: April 5, 2016
In a world where people are invulnerable to illness and death, with lives spanning hundreds of years, a sixteen-year-old becomes witness to the impossible – her brother’s failure to regenerate after death after which she suspects that she too may be mortal.
Everly Frost wrote her first story when she was nine. She grew up in a country town, lived for a little while in Japan, and worked for several years in Canberra, Australia's capital city. Now, Everly lives in Brisbane, Australia, with her husband and two children. She doesn't speak Japanese so often anymore, has left the cold Canberra winters behind, but has never stopped writing.
