Amit Janco

Bali, Indonesia

Amit Janco writes stories, makes art, and practices yoga. While walking the Camino de Santiago in 2013, Amit developed—as all upstanding human beings should—an unexpected fondness for donkeys. She also discovered—as all fortunate human beings can—a resolve, strength and healing she’d previously thought out of reach. Amit blogs at healingpilgrim.com and dabbles in social-mediaesque things @amitjanco. Her memoir, titled (Un)bound Together, is her first book.

Update #10 - Sad news & good news Sept. 17, 2018

Hello from a very hot 'n humid Bali!

The sad news is that I've had to split from my publisher. Without getting into (boring!) details about how or why I rescinded the contract, let's just say that I felt that my book merited more attention and I, more communication -  than he was able (or willing) to provide. I've been feeling disappointed and sad, even a little nervous at the prospect of having to start over. In fact, I thought this sudden ending was going to set me back to square one. But, not true!! 

The good news is that (as you already know), the manuscript is complete ;) Which I expect *hope!* will make the search for a literary agent / publisher easier; or perhaps I will still decide to self-publish. The field is wide open at the moment, and I have a lot of work ahead of me. But in order to ensure that my manuscript is given the best treatment it deserves, I need to do everything I can to place it into the hands of a publisher (if I choose to go that route) who will appeciate and understand what my first publisher unfortunately could not.

Finally, an apology: Although I promised to deliver the published book by next month or the end of 2018 at the latest, at this point, I can't yet provide a publication date. So as much as I've been truly grateful for your patience during the writing and editing process, I hope I can count on your continued support and patience as I wade through this unexpected period of time. I have faith that I'll end up with a much better book!

I promise to keep you posted with further updates as they happen.

With armfuls of gratitude,

Amit
