PostSubject: I am so frustrated   Tue Apr 09, 2013 3:22 pm

Dear prayers!
I am a christian German author and I am so frustrated.
Please pray for my!
Half a year ago, a small publisher shows so an overwelming intereset at my script (900 pages), that I was doubtful, even if they immediatley talked about the conditions and the time, they want to publish that. I should not send my script to another....
Two days later they said, in this way it is not possible. I had to change the POV - from omniscient narrotor to third person. It took me three month, after one month I sent them the first 80 pages and they said - good, go on this way. At the end I send the changed script and split it in two scripts, as they wished, first part: 700.000 characters.
I asked them to give me an anwers or I want to give it to a literary agent.
They send me a contract including all rights of furhter novels and the contract said: the script (of part one) is already handed out. We signed and I was happy, waiting for the editorial office to send my script back with the common things to change.
BUT!: The send me just an E-mail, that they could not work with that and I have to cancel all the other POV's (I had more than 3, but they knew that) and the volume had to be reduced from 700.000 to 550.000 characters.
After a call I find out, they not even read my whole script, only 70 pages+synopsis!
That changes the way I wanted to write (more like a saga and not just focus on the couple) and erase many scene's because of that and the limited characters. Besides this I think I need 2-3 month and the publishing date is in danger.
BUT that is my first contract! I worked so hard. I am more than frustred and feel deceived.

Please pray for me!
Yours
Manuela Schäfler

My prayer each day is that God use me to pray for those crying out "God have someone pray!"

I have you in my prayers, Miss Manuela. I can imagine how frustrating it must be to work so hard, and yet it doesn't seem to help. I prayer the Lord will give you peace and wisdom in this situation.
