Now I'm querying authors. And I'm getting 98% rejections.
According to my schedule, I need to have the authors that are going to blurb my book all lined up this month. My ARCS are almost ready. Things are good to GO.
Except nobody wants to blurb my book!
Is there a secret to this?
Of the authors I've heard back from, most have apologetically informed me that my editor/agent must request their editor/agent to allow them to blurb my book. Some have flat out told me no. Most haven't responded.
Next goal: Line up blogs for blog tour. Hopefully this will be easier.
While you're all here, hanging out on my blog, let me announce AUGUST'S COMMENT WINNER! Number 53, Krysten @ after I do! Krysten, you won the book

Oh, and in case anyone's wondering, my bumper stickers arrived. They're beautiful, but only one is on the car straight. The other--well, it's a little crooked. And I guess that's how it will be for life, because I can't get it off.
