However, that is precisely what we unagented, small press-published authors are destined for when we begin the query process anew: the slush pile.
It's a fact of life that I think most of us accept. We would love to have the next brilliant idea that makes editors go, "Ooh, aah, we must have this!" Admittedly, I think my latest manuscript is at least brilliantly funny... Will editors agree and think that others will enjoy it?
Considering the laughs it has garnered from my alpha and beta readers, I hope so!
The excerpts I shared on Facebook had people posting comments, such as "I love this!", "This is so funny!" and "This is great!"
So the story certainly has received quite a bit of reader-love.
In the end, it's the readers who matter most.
But, in the beginning, it's the editors we have to impress. ;)
