My Manuscript is Finished!

by Jacqueline Whitmore

Great news! I finished my manuscript, POISED FOR SUCCESS, on February 28! Just in case you’ve ever wondered what a manuscript looks like before it’s transformed into a book, here’s what mine looks like (four sections, 20 chapters, 47,000 words).  Now it will go through an extensive editing process at St. Martin’s Press before it gets published in November 2011.

    So great and excited for you and very proud of you too. We’ve come a long way from the Maui Writers Conference. I just returned from four book signings in Maui. The new Hawaiian edition of Beach Chair Diaries has sold over 1400 copies since November. It’s been great to share the journey with you.

    Just wondering if you got an agent yet? Just finished mine and wanted to know how its been going for you. Is it as hard as they say?

    Hello Taty, I’ve had the same wonderful agent for seven years. You can find a good one by attending a writer’s conference. It’s not hard to find one if you have a great book idea and/or an established brand in your industry.

Have something to add?
