We're still in the beta phase :)
My mom is my beta and is very supportive about this. It's fun to have someone you trust to talk about your doubts and choices on this adventure. She also reminds me that I already have a no and that there's still the chance of getting a yes. With other words, I can't aim low because I think I don't make a chance.

Though we're still beta-reading, I'm also looking into some publishers.
The first (and the one I've been talking on here for quite a while now) I send a mail with the question if they could give me some more info about their publishing process. They answered... They only accept manuscripts written in Dutch (which is my case) but they only work through contests. With other words, I have to send in my manuscript as an entry for their contest to even get a chance to be published here. 
After some thinking, I decided to join their contest but also send my manuscript off to other publishers. I have around four other possible options and since it takes around 2 to 3 months before you get a 'yes' or 'no', I figured I'm going to bet on several horses at the same time.
From the one who works with the contests, I know that if I get a chance there, my book will be published in Dutch and translated to English only a few months later. Also e-books from both versions will be made and if I publish with them I don't have to pay a thing. Small downside, I would only get 10 % of what the book makes.
With other publishers the English version is a big questionmark because to do so they will have to sell the title to one of their contacts in other countries. Plus side, the chance is quite large according to my mom that when I get selected by one of this larger and more experienced publishers, I will get better terms.
I'm a bit nervous because one of the publishers on my list is the biggest Publisher of Belgium/the Netherlands when it comes to Fantasy. My book is a Young Adult one written in Urban Fantasy style. Since their list of Young Adults is rather short, I'm a bit anxious to send my manuscript to them... But as I said, I already have a no. How cool would it be if I get a yes?
Either way, time can only tell if Muse Academy book 1 will show up in the bookstores. I really hope it will because I can't wait to write the other five books aswell...
