Book Country Member Spotlight Q&A
I feel a responsibility to tell the truth as I experience it. –Shannon LC Cate.
We’re happy to welcome Book Country writer Shannon LC Cate to the blog. Shannon’s debut novel, Jack, is forthcoming from Musa Publishing in September 2013. She’s also been writing about family, parenting, politics and religion since 2000. We sat down to talk about Book Country, the writing process, and getting published.
Nevena: Congratulations on selling Jack to Musa Publishing! Can you take me through the publishing deal?
Shannon: I had submitted Jack to a handful of literary agents. (I workshopped my query here at Book Country.) Three requested the manuscript in full and one of those wanted a revise and resubmit. I did the revision but still got a final “no thanks.”
