Blog of September 14, 2011
I have a couple of things that may be of interest. First of all, the BIG news for me is that I now have a literary agent!!! WOO HOO!!! She is shopping around my contemporary YA. I worked and reworked my query/first three chapters until I couldn’t see straight! Then I submitted it.
The second news is that I did an interview on Dark Angel’s blog yesterday with a giveaway for my YA historical novel, Fitaroy: The Boy Who Would Be King. Here is the link to that blog: http://www.darkangelwritingtools.com/2011/09/character-interview-with-author.html
And besides announcing it here today on this blog, another blogger asked me to do an interview about how to get an agent. Her blog is: http://authoraubrie.blogspot.com/
but I’m not sure when the interview will be posted so keep checking! I hope to have a giveaway on that one, too.
And the third piece of good news is that my murder mystery (not YA) is coming out at the end of the month from Gypsy Shadow. I may do another one to follow that one, still pondering.
I have finally met my editor for my faerie v. human novel to be published in April, 2012 by Muse It Up. I am working on the sequel to it (it might be a three book series, not sure yet).
My current WIP takes place on an alternative planet earth loosely based on the Salem Witch Trials. I really like writing fantasy, especially YA fantasy. It’s probably my favourite genre to write in.
So, now it feels a little bit surreal that I have an agent. I have been writing since I was eight and I had my first poem published when I was 17. As Bob Dylan stated in his song, My Back Pages, "Ah, but I was so much older then/I'm younger than that now.”
Take care until next time,
