National Novel Submission Month

(NaNoSubMo)

This will be the chronicle of J.T. Evans's efforts to submit to at least one agent or editor for each day of the month of November during 2012. This idea is obviously inspired by NaNoWriMo. If you don't know what that is, follow the link.

This site will not be pretty, as it's only reason to exist is to display a chart of progress through the month and the results of that progress. Maybe the site will be expanded in 2013? We'll see.

I'm going to do some prep work (think of it as outlining a novel) beforehand and pick out agents/editors that I feel are good fits for my work.

Some agents/editors may or may not be upset by posting their name and such here. Some are picky. Some aren't. Out of respect for those that don't want their names bandied about, I'll be identifying agents/editors by numbers. Only I will know their true identity. If I land a deal through these efforts check my Twitter feed and Facebook wall for updates.

I plan on posting information such as:

PS: As you can probably tell, the number of Agents vastly outweighs the number of Editors. This is because I had a hard time finding editors open to unsolicited queries that come directly from the writer. I know they're out there, but there are no central repositories (that I know of) for this information.

PPS: Yep. I realize there are only 30 days in November, and I have 31 folks listed. I plan on submitting at least twice in one of the days to see what happens. I just couldn't bring myself to cut someone from my wonderful list!
