I’m Querying?? Yes. Yes, it’s finally happening.

I took the plunge. I am now querying HER NAME WAS A GHOST (Aka, Silver) *screams* *buries face in pillow* *screams more* *runs around* *blow horns* *bangs pots and pans* *sits down spaced out wondering what the heck is happening* To repeat that again: I am now querying literary agents.

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 25

It's Saturday morning (last Saturday morning if you want to know).

The only problem is, you've been slogging through the mud for a year, or maybe years, maybe even EONS. You've read the book inside and out.

Round 500 of Edits and Things I’ve Learned

I honestly I have no idea how many drafts of Silver I have gone through. It's not something I have ever kept track of, but I've been working on it for three years so there's that. But I came here to say I have started yet another draft. BUM BUM BUM. After I came back … Continue reading Round 500 of Edits and Things I’ve Learned
