GETTING PUBLISHED … Shared Personal Experience And A Few Great Professional Tips

In 2012, my last two Query Letters containing proposals for the “Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle” books generated interest from a small Canadian press and from a mid-size American press.

However, in 2012, while working at the Harbour Inn in Kincardine, Dad’s care needs took priority rather than writing the books. But then when I had to quit work to be on hand for Dad, in the odd hours in-between I did wrote the first book and even printed one hundred for a signed limited first edition as well as registering my company of the same name.

Later discovering Smashwords, I learned how to publish ebooks and have since published several.

But the debt I incurred to be with Dad and help him, meant I had no money for marketing and other related costs.

My acceptance into a local angel investors contest fueled my hope for the company, but the contest was restricted to entrepreneurs who committed to stay in Dad’s area, but once he passed I desperately wanted to leave the area I had returned to for his sake.

Encouraged also by the community foundation’s financier interest in financing with a loan, I later applied to the community foundation in my new area, but because of the 15k debt and no working cash capital, my grant request was denied.

Since then, I have tried to raise money on my own, including attracting a partner, but this past week decided that the partners) best suited are an agent and publishers to generate the cash needed for the debt repayment and the company’s growth, expansion, and relocation to the west coast.

To aid the these personal and professional goals, I have also applied to do a TED Talk.

Anyway, I came across these two links for writers yesterday who want to submit their works, so I am sharing with any of you who many also want to take that leap. Good Luck!



P.S. When I started writing, many of my query letters resulted in my writing being published, including professionally, plus garnered interest from a small press in Arizona to publish my first book, which I declined because I realized it was not the work I wanted to be known for.

Based on “Connecting the Dots … with the Respect Principle’s Respect Scale”

Kaitlin Ann Trepanier … The Respect Specialist

April 15, 2016

Raising my Respect Level was a healing process that took years because of the lack of such a device as the Respect Scale and the philosophy presented in Connecting the Dots … with The Respect Principle books, products, and services. The research, analysis, and development of the core concept empowered me to reclaim the parts of me discarded or oppressed due to lack of approval or support, including writing as a profession, to educate, inspire, and entertain through the establishment of my company … a social business venture, a for-profit business, dedicated to meeting the social need of raising individual and humanity’s Respect Level for the benefit of all people.
