So, I got into a LONG!!! talk with a reader/friend of mine about the world of publishing. Now, I'm not an expert, but staring down the release of my 6th book (holy shit, 6th?!), I have to reflect on a few realities of publication & open a dialogue with the #WritingCommunity
1/
A bit of background: I've been writing since 2006. I self-pub'd my first book in 2009, and continued with self-pub ever since. This was just before self-publication became vogue. And it was a conscious choice - and it was also how I learned what I know. The hard way.

My friend said, "Getting an agent is like winning the lottery". This isn't wrong.
I tried to query, and was shot down every. single. time.
This isn't unusual. In fact, every #writer know that when you're #querying, this is par for the course.

THE ANGELIC CROWN OR CHAPLET

(CHAPLET OF ST MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL)

~thread~
1. (You can pray this chaplet on beads of three-and-one, St Michael Chaplet beads, or on your fingers.)

On the medal:
V. O God, come to my assistance.
R. O Lord, make haste to help me.

2. Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

~~

Before each salutation:One Our Father, three Hail Marys on the three beads grouped together, in honour of the corresponding Choir of Angels.
3. FIRST SALUTATION:

At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of the SERAPHIM, may it please God to make us worthy to receive into our hearts the fire of His perfect charity. Amen.

(to be continued; one angelic salutation a time, please God)
