Still pursuing the dream...

Okay, so I didn't make the cut in agent Nathan Bransford's contest for first pages - http://www.nathanbransford.blogspot.com/ - somehow I'm not surprised. He doesn't really represent romance or erotica, so it doesn't come as a shock. Still, the entries chosen represent an interesting mix of styles and even while some of them break "the rules" I've been taught.

I'm still waiting to hear from the publisher-sponsored contest I entered and in the interim, I'm preparing query letters, continuing to write and plot other stories and working on setting up a web presence.

I'll continue until I reach the goal of publication - and then I'll sigh happily and keep on writing!

Thank you for playing along...

What I'm Looking Forward to...

Signing a contract for publication
Getting edits on my manuscript
Getting cover art for my first book
Seeing my name in print
Having someone tell me they "LOVED" my book
Seeing my books in a bookstore
My first booksigning

I'm sure there are many more, but those stick out in my head right now...

Thank you for playing along...
