Author: Sarah Potter Writes

Sarah is a British eccentric who writes offbeat fiction, haiku and tanka poetry. When stuck for words, she sketches or paints instead. She's into nature conservation, sustainability, gardening, dogs, natural health, and reading. Her sociability is something that happens in short bursts with long breathing spaces in between.

    1. Yes, I’m actually really pleased with it. I used a different approach this time, which was to not refer to the manuscript at all but just type up the story from memory. Much better than having papers scattered all over the place and emitting periodic screams!

      Had to compose the perfect query letter, too. Oh, how I hate the selling part of literary creation.


      1. Yes, indeed. Apart from the obvious fans of speculative fiction, I think my work might appeal to the growing 18 to 30-year-old female market (and nudge, nudge, wink, wink especially as women are better at remembering names than certain male bunnies!).


    1. Thanks, Naomi. I’ll keep that image of you enjoying reading my novel firmly in my mind to keep me positive during my search for a publisher.

      I got a 404 message come up for that link, saying the page I’m looking for is not there anymore and might have moved. I’ll try a more generalised search and see if I can find it. Thanks for the thought.
