Louise Wise used her general love of romantic fiction and interest in astronomy to write her first book, Eden. It was an experimental novel and was never meant to see the light of day! She had received many rejections, which stated that the novel was just too original for the current market. An agent took it on but failed to find a publisher for it, this urged Louise into believing in the novel, and herself as a writer.
She published with YouWriteOn.com a review website, which she whole-heartedly recommends. Eden has received good reviews so far: http://amzn.to/aqm4eM and even though Louise, without a mainstream publisher behind her, doesn’t expect it to hit the best seller list she will be happy to publish again with YWO.
“I’ve done with rejection letters,” she says. “Who needs them? I’d rather concentrate on getting my MS up to scratch instead of sending out submissions and waiting months - sometimes never getting a reply.”
She has learned her lesson though, and now sticks safely to comedy romance (chicklit). A Proper Charlie will be out later this year.
Married, with four children, Louise lives in England. She is a pharmacist assistant by day, and a writer by night.Visit her website http://louisewise.blogspot.com/ and leave a message. She'd love to hear from you.
