Joe: Good afternoon, Calliope.
Calliope: Good afternoon Joe. I assume you have been hard at work on your book.
Joe: You are correct. First I have a new working title for it, Rest Your Stress and Reclaim Your Life. I have completed the manuscript and have received feedback from several trusted readers I have used for past books.
Calliope: Great. Now What?
Joe: I am exploring publication options. I found a couple agents who have represented books somewhat similar to mine. I will start by contacting them to see if they might be interested. I know agents are very busy and they have hundreds if not thousands of books to choose from. I don’t envy them their job. I have also come to appreciate the complexities of their work in the present publishing world.
Calliope: Good luck. Can you tell me a little more about the book?
Joe: Here is how I describe it in my query letter, “While many books on stress offer partial treatments or quick fixes, Rest Your Stress and Reclaim Your Life provides a more comprehensive approach.” Then I go on to detail the contents of the book.
Calliope: Sounds like you are on the right track.
Joe: I hope so. I would love to find an agent and get on with publishing it. Talk with you later.
