I’d heard it all. Good luck breaking into the CBA with fantasy, no agent will represent you, and speculative fiction is a hard sell. Good advice, all.
If I’d listened to the voices telling me what I couldn’t do, DawnSinger would not now be published, I wouldn’t be part of the wonderful Wordserve Literary Agency with Barbara Scott as my agent, and (worst of all) I wouldn’t have touched the readers who loved DawnSinger and are awaiting WayFarer, book two of Tales of Faeraven, my epic fantasy trilogy.
How did I buck the odds and should you try? The answer lies at the heart of what I like to call the five P’s of writing.
Bucking the odds with your writing may feel like a curse sometimes, but it’s really a blessing because it humbles you and requires you live in a place of trust in God.
