The book is finished; I broke it up into two. Although I didn’t want to, if I want to get published, sacrifices will have to be made. So I broke it up. It’s been edited as much as it can be, spell check and grammar checked as much as it could be, that part is done and out of my hands. Now, it’s the rejection part. Not really worried about the rejection part of it, as I half expect it. It’s the, what happens if their interested part that gets my nerves going.
I’ve sent over 50 query letters already, and have gotten back about nine, as of writing this. I think I’ll post the Query Letter here, in hopes of catching a lucky break. Only concern I’d have is being scammed. Apparently there’s enough of that out there, to warrant warning by literary websites. Oh good, cant make this to easy, can we?
I started on book three, now, since one broke into two. Confusing I know, you should see my notes on all of it. Phew. Glad I can read and understand my ramblings. Book three is pretty much outlined a plot chosen, and what I want to accomplish written down. It is also half way done. So the rest shouldn’t be hard. It’s the actually getting to sit and do it, becomes the problem now. I did manage to work on it on vacation, which is what I wanted to do, so that’s good. Unfortunately the mosquitoes became such a nuisance, I quickly lost my desire to work on it where I could relax and let the words flow. So I didn’t work on it as much as I would have liked.
So there you have it. Progress. And I’m at least keeping up with updating here, which is also good. I kept that goal up. Half way through the year. Will I get an agent before the end? Let’s see what happens down the road.
