email with you. I spent a lot of time thinking about it. After sending my questions off to the publisher, and receiving the answers on the same day, I've come to a decision. The idea of a small publisher is provocative. They have the time to work with me, and I think in the long run it can be just as successful a book as going the more traditional route.
However, I've only been querying agents for a month. In my heart, I really want to give the traditional way all I have before I look at the alternatives. I'm VERY grateful I have alternatives. It takes some of the sting out of rejection. Well, a tiny bit of it anyway.
My plan is to go through my agent list. If at the end SENDEK has not found a home, I will start looking at the great small publishers out there. The one I've talked to will be at the top of the list.
All right! In other news, I need YOU, my writerly friends to help me with a Smell Thesaurus that I'm putting together on my other blog Descriptive Faces.
If you are willing to help out, sign up in the comments so we can keep track of what smells are taken so we can cover all of them.
Do you have more we can add?
I'll start posting them on the Descriptive Faces site with credit given to you and with a link to your blog.
