Literary Agents Hate Reading About AIDS: why self-publishing rocks by da-AL

Hello graffiti at end of walkway.
Thanks, Ryan McGuire of gratisography.com

It’s official – of the numerous individualized reminder emails I’ve sent to literary agents about my blog, only the latest one elicited responses — the one that mentioned AIDS in the subject line.

Fortunately, the internet and self-publishing allows diverse voices to be heard.

The 3rd literary agent saddens me all the more about the state of publishing.

The 2nd literary agent made me sure that agents don’t want to publish anything about AIDS.
The first literary agent that replied.
The 1st literary agent to reply made me wonder if they had a problem with discussions about AIDS.

  1. Daal, It’s hard to imagine a community as heartless as these agents suggest the industry to be. Surely, someone grasps the significance of the issue of AIDS and understands that it’s a story still to be told. We know there are readers, but there is a lack of courage perhaps.
    We are all touched by AIDS, as an unsuspected scourge of the past 40 or so years, as an example of the universalism of modern disease, and the ongoing need for care for victims and education for everyone.
    I admire your campaign to promote compassion.
