Today, I am pitching La Bastarda as an Adult Historical Fiction to whichever agents are watching the feed. I’ve thought about it long and hard, and I really want to try and go the traditional route first. There’s something about wanting to see my book in print, in a storefront somewhere, instead of on a Kindle, that just makes my heart soar. I personally prefer physical books, though I understand that tablets and reading apps have their uses, and I want to have my book on my bookshelf. I know there are people who have queried for ages, and if they’re reading this they’re probably yelling at their screen “IT’S NOT THAT SIMPLE YOU FOOL!”, and I know, but the simple truth is that I can’t afford much else.
I don’t know if I’m going to be peak anyone’s interest. I don’t know if I’m going to “make it” to the next round. I don’t know how I’ll feel after PitMad ends, but all I can say is that I’ll have tried, and that’s what counts.
After all, “trying” got me this far.
