Publishing advice from author Everly Frost + A chance to win FEAR MY MORTALITY

I'm excited to have Everly Frost with us today to talk about her path to publication and share her advice to those of us still working towards our publication dreams.  Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for a chance to win a copy of FEAR MY MORTALITY!

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!
