The Waiting Game

I learned a lot about hurry up and waiting when I was in the Air Force. You would think that training would help me now that I'm an author, but....*sigh* it doesn't. lol I tell people that I used to be a patient person before I started writing and submitting stories. heehee

Waiting....let me count the ways.

1.) You sub the story. Now the wait begins to see if the publishing house will pick it up.

2.) You get a yes and do the happy dance! Now you have to wait for edits.

3.)'ve waited through the edits and the back and forth now you wait for the cover.

4.) You jump up and down because you LOVE your cover. Now you wait for the release date.

5.) You get your release date and more happy dancing commences. Now you have to wait for the actual release.

6.) You are screaming so loud they can hear you all over the country because your release day is here! have to wait to hear from the readers and reviewers to see if they like your story.

After all starts all over again! lol Good thing authors love to write. heehee And I'm happy to have great friends that make the wait not seem that long. :)

Hi Jambrea,

Yes, it is a waiting game but we are lucky with ebooks. In the traditional print publishing world, you can wait over a year for a contract and then months for edits...many more months for a release date etc. We are lucky with ebooks...a thing I never take for granted!
