Earlier, I met up with my friend who is also a writer. As we were sitting at the ferry building in San Francisco and looking at the Bay Bridge, we exchanged our future story ideas.
Out of the books I wrote or I’m planning to write, I think only a few have a chance at traditional publication. Currently, these are my stories:
- Clash of Tides
- Love for an Angel
- 9/Nine Realms
- Spoiled Rich Girl (Title subject to change).
While I do want to publish Clash of Tides, I don’t know if an agent would be interested in the book. It’s rare to find a book about a merman as the main protagonist, and even rarer to have a black woman as the main female lead. However, I am still going to try and see what happens.
I think Love for an Angel’s fate speaks for itself. I have no idea if that book is publishable, or if people would really want to read it. Honestly, I think the best story I’ve written so far is 9/Nine Realms. I’ll probably talk about 9/Nine Realms in another blog post for those who are interested. Anyway, I don’t want to get too off topic. The point I want to make is you can submit many books for publication. If one manuscript doesn’t seem up to par but another does, then try that manuscript. I’m not going to limit myself to one story or genre, and neither should other writers. Now, I need to get back to writing Love for an Angel.
