Something Funny about Her

  • Mood:

Advice please

A friend at work who's been having a writing group I've attended told me she has a publicist in California she's been sending work to.

The other day she told me that a short story of mine I showed her last writing group was excellent, and she thinks it's publishable and she'd like me to bring a copy for her to send along with her own stuff she's been submitting to this woman.

It will have my name on it and she's not passing it on as her own writing, of course. I trust her. She tells me that the publicist will then submit it to the venues she thinks would be interested in the story, like she does with my friend's poems and things.

I guess I was just wondering what to expect if I do this. If the publicist submits this to venues and they're taken up, I will assume I will be contacted, but I've never done this before. I don't know what all will be involved if anything happens.

I guess if who she sends it to buys the piece I will receive some and the publicist will take a cut. Would that be right?

I want to do it, and it would be fun to just go head, but like I said, I just don't know what to expect.

Sorry for the stupid question... I'd love some guidance here. :-)
