all connected. I had 15 seconds to get my act together. I never did. The conversation actually went as expected – Nan and Patti were cordial, and tried very hard to be helpful. Bottom line – they don’t have the expertise needed to provide what Chris and I need – an agent and/or a publisher. This is our missing link. And it’s a very important and illusive link.
Rather, Patti and Nan agreed that they could assist with marketing and editing, in relation to marketing. This may very well bode well for us in future endeavors. But right now, we need an agent and publisher.
Talking with the two was good for me because it made me realize that I do know a lot about publishing, and some about marketing. There is a very specific market for this book, and it is those who have an interest in Icelandic horses. Our putting this out around Christmas, when the Hobbit movie comes out, is only going to be to our advantage. It’s just going to take an agent with foresight to make this happen. And it will. I can’t let myself think otherwise.
