Publication Quest

I'm going to have to rename this thread eventually. :) Strangely enough I'm not in a big rush for the first book to be released. I'm sure the day will come quickly enough. Meanwhile I've got lots to keep me busy.

Those women (and there are a lot of them) who produce a whole slew of stories each year have my deepest admiration and a bit of envy. They must think and type much faster than I do. Actually, it's the thinking part that really slows me down. As slow and poky as the first draft is - even as I make the key strokes I know it will require another draft and another. Practice improves speed, yet there is still so much to learn and I learn slowly.

Current year's goals updated

1) Continue to study and learn the craft of writing.

2) Three submissions – done – follow up with a sequels* to each-- first sequel in progress!

3) In roads into the TBR shelves


Progress report

1) Reading craft stuff –

Six submissions sent! Two novels, one novella x two, and one short x two

Status: One sale – two rejections – two waiting to hear from the publishers--yes I realize this doesn't add up--one story has been submitted to two publishers--living on the edge here ;)

Timeline:

Number Two: Sold!

Number three: Resubmitted--new estimated response time--eight to ten weeks

Number four: Rejected and resubmitted – new estimated response time – one month

*Yes, I do admit this is an insane plan, but I need to stay busy. If I have idle time I become even more neurotic and imagine unpleasant things. Far better to put my twisted mind to work developing more dangerously sexy stories.

TBR stack is down (as long as I don’t count the virtual shelf) – read a couple of print books
