book is in the Publishing Process as GIF Form


At first you're thinking of writing a novel and you're all...


But then you have an idea!


And you go...


But then you hit page 50 and you're all....


And then you hit page 75 and you're all...


But you power through!!


And then you're finished!!! You have finished a novel!!


Only then find out you have to start querying agents.


So you write your query letter...


You obsess over it...


And then you send it out to agents and you're all...


Then a couple of days go by and you're all...


And...

And...


But then you hear from your first agent!! And you're all...


And...


And it's a rejection. But it's just your first one so you're all...


Then you get a few more and it's more like...


But then! An agent calls! And they love your work! They want to represent you! And inside you're like...


But you don't want your agent to think you're crazy so instead you're like...


And you love your agent! When you say "yes" you want to...


But instead you go...


And then it's time to submit to publishers. You are back on submission, and you're like...


Then the editors start saying....


And...


And your inbox starts looking like...



And you're all...


And...


And...


But then your phone says your agent is calling. And you want to be like...


But instead it's more like...


And it's an offer! You have an offer! And you feel like...


And...


And...


And...


And then you go celebrate with your friends and they're all...


And on the car ride home you're still like...


But it's time for revisions. And you pretend you know what you're doing...


And it's back to...


But then you're done! You're really really done! Only your book doesn't come out for another year. And so you're like...


And...


You get your cover and you're all...


But then publication day approaches! And your reviews start coming out and it kind of feels like...


But some of them are good! And you're like...


And then your book is out there! People are reading your book!


And it feels pretty good!


And there's only one thing to do. Start the whole thing over again.
