Dear Mr. Bloom, I have been reading your Cli-Fi blog, and I’d greatly appreciate a moment of your time.
KEY: Over a period of days, they reconnect, open old wounds and reveal deep secrets that shaped their pasts and transform their futures in ways that none of them could have imagined.
''Thanks for writing. This novel sounds very interesting and I love the synopsis. If I ran a publishing house, I would send you a contract right now. Alas, I am just a PR guy....
But I love the story. And it's not dystopian end of the world survivalist science fiction YA FANTASY. Literary fiction is best way to go. Cli fi is serious!
We face major issues and storytelling can help us see the way via emotion and story.
Sadly, the publishing business is rigged. To get in the door, you need an agent. To get an agent you must have a major bestseller already published to wide acclaim. The doors are closed, more or less, although a few exceptions happen too. But rarely. Sigh.
The self publishing route is one way to go. Keep looking for an agent too.
Tell me , where are you located? Is there a local literary press there? Starting local is good. I know some publishers but almost all of them want to go through an agent. And agents are part of this catch-22 rigged game.
Still, there's hope. I live on hope. Some publishers DO open their doors to newbies . So tell more about who you are and yr earlier background, college and what major etc .
