So I have been doing my research on literary agencies and agents that might take my query into consideration and I noticed that a lot of them ask for Author’s bios. I looked into what that entails and a lot of websites suggested that it has to do with the author’s publishing history, which I obviously don’t have. They also suggested that if you don’t have publishing experience, you can demonstrate your dedication to your craft by talking about literary societies you’re involved in.
Well… I’m not involved in literary societies either. I’m actually quite a hermit. Interactions with other humans exhausts me, and I try to avoid it if I can help it. The only thing I can think that might demonstrate my qualifications for writing the novel I’m submitting for query is the fact that I share my protagonists profession (seamstress), and I have lived in my protagonists home of origin (England). That’s about it. I don’t have any published works, I haven’t won any reputable writing contests. I don’t even have a Twitter account. I’m just a recluse trying my hand at traditional publication.
