This is the Worst Part

Ok, so my first novel is complete. I know, I can already hear some of you saying, “but you said that last year!” Well, I’ve learned a lot since then that I decided to put into practice before releasing it to the world. (I mean that completely figuratively since I still have a LOT of work to do to get an agent. The good news is that I’m already several chapters into the second book and I’m really excited where the story is headed. The process now begins for me to find an agent and build a fan base. I hope that my three or four fans that I have now will get the word out there if you know others that might be interested. I will keep you posted on my progress. The last few months have been rough, but I have high hopes that it will make it to the presses. Wish me luck and now that I’m back, look for new updates here!

Getting Started

Ok, so I’ve never really done a true blog before so bare with me.  It will be a long time before this is ready for prime time, but if you’re willing to give it a shot, I’ll try my best to make it worth your time.  I’m new the the whole business of writing.  I started writing a novel years ago.  The original manuscript was actually a short story that has grown into a series.  I went to the DFW Writer’s Conference for the first time this past weekend and learned a lot.  I was fortunate enough to get a pitching session with my first choice agent Amy Boggs with the Donald Maass Literary Agency. I can’t help but be excited at the prospect of getting picked up by such a wonderful agent. I had researched her before and had already decided to query her before finding out she was attending the conference. I can only hope that she likes my manuscript. All in all, the conference was a blast!  I learned so much and realized how much more I need to learn (especially about blogs).
