There are many blog series which feature published authors and how they managed to scale the publishing heights, but few focus on writers in the midst of the struggle. Many of us fear being labelled failures or no-talent wannabes if we open up about rejections, and we suffer in silence as a result. I recently wrote a vulnerable post titled What if you never get that book published? which caught the attention of Karen Hollands, a Queensland writer who despite amassing many accolades is also yet to secure a publishing deal. As a result, this month I am delighted to feature in Karen’s new interview series about what it feels like to exist ‘in that liminal space between submitting and securing a contract’.
Check out Karen’s upcoming blog series which is certain to provide valuable insight into the journey to publication.
