One of the questions in the submission process was what make my book different. So I was all too glad to tell Deseret Book/Covenant/Cedar Fort just how unique my book is. A non-Mormon showing up in predominantly Mormon town all so he could win the money from a weight loss competition?
Do you stock anything like that on your shelves?
A few days after I submitted my manuscript, my world came crashing down with one simple terrifying thought.
Maybe they don't sell anything like my book, because it doesn't sell?
That's when I felt like this:
What if Deseret Book is filled with period romance novels and WWII historical fiction because that's all Mormons want to read?
I guess I'll find out eventually.
