I really did! 

When I signed a contract with a publisher, I thought it gave me some kind of promise.

But, they informed me recently that they are focusing their efforts on a writer with existing readership, and that the rest of us with contracts can go and ….

Well you can add in the end of that sentence for yourself!

What makes me mad is that they had my first novel for a year and a half and my second one for 8 months, and did nothing with them.

It reminds me of the story of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey that was bought by a publisher and never published.

So I have now sent my first novel to California, and the second one to an internet publishing house.

Hopefully I will have better success this time!
