Getting the book out on the shelf in you
The proverb says that EVERYONE has a book in them. However the writer Joseph O'Connor gives the following tips on www.writing. ie, a must for both prospective and seasoned writer alike: "For Ireland's début novelists Claire McGowan, Kathleen MacMahon and Sarah Crossan, who all published their first books this year to a crucial and commercially successful conclusion, the first novel they have written was not necessarily the one that was published.
Indeed, all three had previously refined their trade with an unreleased novel before they signed their bookstores. For years Claire McGowan, whose detective novel The Fall appeared on Headline in February, had been writing many other things. "She says, "I think it's pretty uncommon for your first book to be published.
As she waited for the operatives to return to her former novel, she started to write The Case and finished it in three month's time. Claire, a Oxford alumnus, says that taking part in contests is an efficient way for unreleased authors to attract attention. She found out that the renowned Dylan Thomas Prize organizes a contest for unreleased authors under 30 years of age and she chose The Fall, even though the deadline for submissions was that time.
"but in the end it was'no'," she says. When The Fall was shortlisted, it was published throughout the specialist media, so I abruptly got all these agencies and writers to contact me. I had gone away from me to contact operatives and -- well, they'll finally look at it, but it goes into a heap and they can't even reading it for - all of a sudden they came to find me and ask to see the book.
" This is How it Ends writer Kathleen MacMahon, published by Sphere in April, is in the lucky situation of having her book at number one on the original five-week fiction series. Kathleen was about to be released, but acknowledges that she was not quite prepared at the moment.
" A number of writers say that it' s a tiresome duty to write, but Kathleen, who has stayed away from her RTE journalism for a year, says she liked the trial very much. "Ireland-based début writer Sarah Crossan had her first children's book, The Weight of Water, published in January by Bloomsbury, the publisher who co-created JK Rowling's name.
Like Claire and Kathleen, Sarah had previously written an unedited novel -- for grown-ups -- before writing The Weight of Water, the book that gave her an editor and editor. Sarah acknowledges, however, that even a large contract does not necessarily dissipate the self-doubt and fears that plague all authors.
"It was filed in November, although I only received the Bloomsbury bid in January. Although I was so pleased and upset, especially because it was Bloomsbury, I was a little scared.
