After speaking with a book agent, I was advised that as an unpublished author I would have more success getting a publishing contract if I could get a few quotes from well-known names in the book industry to add to my covering letter. I have a few contacts that could hopefully make this happen but first, I need to print a short run of my book.
The copies from this short run will be sent out to those in the book industry I'm in contact with, in the hopes they'll have time in their busy schedules to read it and give me a few words to use on the cover.
The downside is that I have to pay for this short run myself. This is where, hopefully, you come in. Any donations would be greatly appreciated and I promise that, all going well, I'll include all your names in the 'thank you' section of my book when it gets published (fingers crossed)!
