Marketing - Acceptance

23 October 2011, Marketing - Acceptance

Introduction: I realized that I need to introduce this blog a little.  I wrote the novel Aksinya: Enchantment and the Daemon.  The working title was Daemon, and this was my 21st novel.  Over the last year, I gave you the entire novel in installments that included commentary on the writing.  In the commentary, in addition to other general information on writing, I explained, how the novel was constructed, the metaphors and symbols in it, the writing techniques and tricks I used, and the way I built the scenes.  You can look back through this blog and read the entire novel.

I'm using this novel as an example of how I produce, market, and eventually (we hope) get a novel published.  I'll keep you informed along the way.  At this moment, I'm showing you the marketing material I put together for a novel.

Today's Blog:  In the future, I might take the time to write about finding a publisher.  I could give you my own story in great detail, but there are lots of sites with that information on them.  I think much of it is sweat, opportunity, and finding a publisher who really likes your writing.  Instead, I want to focus on what happens when you finally connect with a publisher. 

The first point is all the marketing material I showed you how to write and put together.  Your first contact with a publisher will usually be in their format or in the general format I provided you.  I'll show you my publisher's format and explain an example from Aksinya.  Since I sent my publisher this information, this is the real thing--a publisher contact.

Tomorrow contacting a publisher.

I'll repeat my published novel websites so you can see more examples:, and the individual novel websites:,,,,, and
