No one wants to wait 13 years for their opus to see the light of the day, but that’s what author Jenny Milchman had to do. Before Ballantine published her novel Cover of Snow, Milchman told Tulsa World she had written seven other novels that languished in the proverbial drawer, unpublished.

How did she reverse the cycle? Facebook. She explains, “I had developed a Facebook friendship with a well-regarded mystery novelist whose work I greatly admired, and she offered to read the manuscript. She liked it enough that she forwarded it to her editor, and things started to take off.”
