  1. Hi Ian! I’m really enjoy­ing read­ing your blog, there’s lots of inter­est­ing writerly stuff in here 🙂 I am curi­ous — did you actu­ally post cop­ies of your nov­el to those estab­lished writers you men­tion, or just email them pdfs? I’ve sent out a lot of pdfs of mine to cut costs, but obvi­ously print cop­ies are bet­ter. I wasn’t sure if it was worth­while send­ing print cop­ies out, but 9/10 responses ain’t bad!

  2. Hi Omma

    Yes, I sent off full cop­ies of the book. I think you need to make it as easy as pos­sible to read, so a PDF may not be ideal (though much cheap­er). I put the books in nice little pad­ded envel­opes with a hand-writ­ten com­pli­ments slip and busi­ness card to use as a book­mark. I sent books off to about sev­en writers that I really admire. Almost all of them have acknow­ledged receipt and two of them have got back to me say­ing they’ve read it.

    Let me know if you want to know more…

    Best wishes
