Watch Where You’re Going

Some authors swoop into the world of publishing and feel at home right away. Others with the same amount of talent and skill are like the robin in the photo trying to figure out how to get food out of a hummingbird feeder. No, little one, your beak doesn’t fit. No, there is no special access portal for you at the bottom. Yes, you don’t belong there! In pitching your project to an agent or a publisher, you are trying to land in a spot that’s a good fit for you. Not just any spot will do, so watch where you’re going. Do your homework about the agency and the publishing house so that you don’t end up like that poor robin—frustrated and hungry.
