I can’t believe the last time I wrote anything was in October! My, my, my time sure flies. So what have I been up to since then?
I’ll start with my current project(s). I’m working on the second edit of my “The Anniversary” manuscript. When I finished the first draft, I was at a whopping 122,011 words! The publisher I’m sending it to, wants 100,000 maximum. After getting through the first 36 chapters, I’m happy to report that I’m down to 105,958 words–a reduction of 16,053 words!
While I work away at this, I keep sending Sarah’s Gift out to various publishers–all without success. Last night, as per the agency’s guidelines, I e-mailed the first three pages off to them. If they like that much, they’ll ask for more. So, fingers crossed. I should say that this agency is looking for young adult material which where I believe Sarah will fit in perfectly.
