the numbers are scary

it’s true that getting an agent, and then published, is not really like winning the lottery. the odds aren’t even across the board, and your only real competition is yourself.

still, author d.l. orton’s guest blogger post on pimp my novel regarding rejection stats is pretty depressing.

this is a year-end 2010 stat round-up from the nelson literary agency blog, pubrants. crazy!

can i say again, how the hell did i get so damn lucky? (i know, i know, it’s not all luck, but some of it is, for sure!)
