To those of you who participated in my workshop last week, thank you so much! I enjoyed reading your comments. I hope you'll apply what you learned to your current and future fiction projects.
This week I tremble in anticipation of Knight's Curse starting the submission rounds. My agent has written her pitch letter and has already pitched to a couple of editors, both of whom responded with enthusiasm. Yes! Let's hope they're equally enthusiastic after reading the manuscript. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I've heard August is a dead month for publishers because editors are taking vacations with their families before school starts in the fall. Therefore, I don't expect much "action" until folks return to their desks when summer's over. But you never know. I think my manuscript would make a great beach read. Hee hee! I don't plan to wait with baited breath, though. August is a busy month for me as I prepare for the two workshops I'll be giving at Colorado Gold in September. And I have my next project to work on in the mean time: Mystic Taxi. Though I have the next two books loosely plotted for my Knight series, I know better than to count those chickens too soon.
Tomorrow is Teaser Tuesday so I'll post my one-page synopsis for Mystic Taxi, but without giving away the ending.
