Good News Part 2
Butt in chair. Check.
There's some good news I want to share with you, but it's tentative and relies heavily on my being able to rise to a challenge that I've never met before, so I don't know if it will happen, but I'm hoping, really, really hoping that it will, but you never know, fate is a weird mistress sometimes, all right, I'll just tell you, but don't get too excited, okay?
I received an invitation to submit The Soul Seekers after a revision of the first few chapters and overall tightening of the manuscript. Yes, if I work hard my book will finally see the light of day. Isn't that wonderful? I am to sort of patch together those first few chapters to get the reader closer to the action. I told you before those first were difficult for me because of the premise, but I love challenges and have no problem making it work, as they say. Having spent a lot of time working on short stories the last few months, I can honestly say that the timing is right for this. I know much more about trimming prose than ever before.
Thank you to the amazing Karen for reading the manuscript and speaking with Allie at WiDo publishing. See the contest above^. I am grateful for the opportunity and will work me butt off!
So . . . what's happening this Tuesday for all you good people? We have more snow on the way. Yep.
