Road to Publication

 

Thank you for hosting this stop of the My Senior Year of Awesome blog tour! My road to publication involved a lot of late nights spent in front of my computer. I’ve always loved to write, but never really had the time to sit down and crank out a novel. I started and stopped a lot of stories over the years. So, when I finally decided to take the leap and finish something, I sat down and wrote a story that had been turning in my head. It wound up being 120,000 words long! But, that first novel, and a few after that, wound up being my practice novels. It took me a while to find my voice and my genre.

For My Senior Year of Awesome, I queried a small number of agents and received a round of rejections. While researching additional agents to query, I also sent my book to a few small presses. One came back with an invitation to revise and resubmit. So, I dropped my agent search and began revising. While I was editing and rewriting, an author friend told me about Georgia McBride’s Swoon Romance. My friend thought my work would be a good fit for this up and coming publisher. I sent a query and received a request for a full submission, followed by an email from Georgia at midnight on a Saturday night. Yes, I was awake, and it was one of the most fun emails I’ve ever received!

 

About Jennifer DiGiovanni

Jennifer DiGiovanni

Jennifer lives in a small town near Philadelphia, PA with her husband and three children. In college, she double majored in English and business, and later went back to school for her MBA. She currently works as a freelance writer and owns a small business. She also spends time cheering at her kids’ soccer games, re-learning algebra to help with homework assignments, and cooking up healthy dinners that nobody eats. When she’s not doing any of those things, you can find her reading, working on home design projects, or running (though she's much better at walking). At night, when her house is finally quiet, she brings her YA characters to life. My Senior Year of Awesome is her first novel.

    That’s awesome that you found a match with your book and swoon romance. I don’t think I could write but I love to read what others slave to write.
