Writing Update: Word Count, Submissions, Cover Reveals, Resolutions
Right now I'm waiting on my Loch Ness monster submission! I LOVE this story, and I can't wait to see it published. The question is- by who? I had my agent send it to Entangled to see if it fits their Bliss line, so we'll see.
I'm also waiting for my agent to read my epic fantasy romance, Minstrel's Serenade. Complete at 77k, I'm not sure there's a place out there for this one, but I just had to write it. I've been writing sci fi for so long, I really had to get back to my roots.
I'm waiting to see two covers! One is for Playing The Maestro (formerly My Maestro) for the Entangled Bliss line- coming out Feb. 11th. The other is for Reconnaissance, the second book in the Paradise Reclaimed trilogy. Since I LOVED the cover to the first book- see sidebar to the left- I can't wait to see this one! So stay tuned for two cover reveals in the near future.
As for my resolutions, I have the 365k one- write 1k a day. I'm also going to check my book rankings less because that's just a waste of time, and my confidence plummets when a day goes by and nothing happens. And, I'm going to stop reading reviews- which I've already done. It just frustrates me, and when I see a bad one, it takes me a while to get back on the writing wagon. People can be so snarky and mean. So, it's just a waste of time for me. Poof go the reviews and rankings, and I can focus on my writing.
So what's on the horizon for you? What will 2013 bring?
