. . . the behinder I get

Trying to keep up as the pace of life picks up once again.

The good news is that I'm nearly finished with my edits of The Legend People.  The semi-good news is that I haven't received any additional rejections - yet.  My process is to send a handful of queries out (cream of the crop, if you will) and wait for them to come in.  If no nibbles on the first go-round, check for improvements in the query letter/synopsis and send out a new batch.  I'd begun to jump the gun a bit on improving, but I'm exercising some patience (although still reviewing for "better").

In addition to trying to keep up with myself, I'm attempting to honor my New Year's resolution of losing some poundage, I'm involved with a family wedding which entails Bridal expos and bridesmaid's dresses, etc. and busy season at the day job is right around the corner just waiting for the dam to burst.  It's an exciting time of year, to be sure.  The adrenalin is pumping!  So apologies ahead of time if I get behind in my blogging.  I promise to keep you up to date as new information becomes available.


  1. Keep at it. Your system for queries is a good one. I used to send out queries with a rhythm to magazines - back in the day when magazines were buying and paying- the point is: eventually, it pays off.

  2. I'm still plugging away - I figure somewhere along the line SOMEONE's going to like this story!
