#Author Alex Mueck Shares Pet Peeves & Rejection Blues @AlexMueck #AmWriting #Humor

Pet Peeves of the Publishing Industry
Seems rather hard to break into the business, and everything moves at a snail’s pace.  
Things You Didn’t Know About Becoming a Published Author
 1. You really need an agent.  
2.  The process to completing book and getting it out is a slow wait.  
3. There are many indie publishers/authors.  
4.  It is more about getting a break and knowing someone than talent sometimes. 
How to Avoid the Rejection Blues
Don’t submit your book, and you will never get rejection blues……thus you need to get over rejection quick or like a shy guy at a bar, you will go through life alone.  You need to realize that some people like vanilla some like chocolate and you cannot please everyone.  
Why Book Covers are So Important
They draw the reader.  Most humans are drawn to visuals first.
What to Look for in an Agent
Someone who believes in your work, has the time to devote their energies and has the contacts to achieve succees.

"“A historical fiction comedy that packs
as much heart as humor.”
—Michael Dadich, award-winning author of The Silver Sphere
When a Harvard history professor receives a thesis paper titled Jesse James and the Secret Legend of Captain Coytus, from Ulysses Hercules Baxter—an underwhelming student—he assumes the paper must be a prank. He has never read such maniacal balderdash in his life. But after he calls a meeting with the student, Professor Gladstone is dismayed when Baxter declares the work is his own. As he takes a very unwilling Professor Gladstone back in time via his thesis, Baxter’s grade hangs in the balance as he attempts to prove his theory.
It is 1864 as philanderer and crusader Captain Coytus embarks on a mission to avenge his father’s death and infiltrates the Confederate Bushwacker posse looking for the man responsible, Jesse Woodson James. Accompanied by the woman of his dreams, Coytus soon finds himself temporarily appointed to be the sheriff of Booneville and commissions his less-than-loyal deputy to help him carry out his plan.
But when tragedy strikes, the Captain is forced to change his immature ways and redefine his lofty mission—more or less."
