I'm sure that's right.
When my editor announced I was such and such in the bookseller list my reaction was 'is that good then?'
Since I don't know what constitutes decent sales ( 10, 000? 100. 000?) I can only worry all the more...

Love the piece about being green.
I'm in danger of becoming Helen 'I'm new to this game' Black...and friends and family laugh when I say it'll probably sell three copies.
When it was published they kept asking if Harpercollins were giving me a launch party!

Simon,
Happy New Year, and all the best in your writing in 2008.

Yes, thanks Simon. Sometimes, though- tale Edgar A.P as an example, great works seem to flow from temporarily deranged minds. Sometimes, I think my best work comes when I've been under a lot of stress, or prehaps had the one too many vino's.
This website is great- a really good concept.

Simon--

Your post impressed me (The one about what you do and all that.) I got some very early rejections that said, "You don't write very well." Ironically, these were those that I respected almost as much as the one (actually the same one twice on different projects) that I received from the Atlantic Montly.

Tenacity is the key. I have books and stories that I have never sent out because they're just not good enough as they are. I often revisit them, consider, then decide to work on them again or to let them lie fallow for another year of two.

Tenacity is the key, but you have to be tenacious and improve as well.

Thanks for your post. I'm going to repost his on your crimespace.

Jack

Thanks, folks. Great to meet you all. I'll be checking out everyone's pages for the personal touch over the coming days... things are madcrazyhectic right now. Some interesting (but very labour intensive) marketing strategies being wheeled-out, which are snarling up my time. More as and when...Delete Comment
