Well friends that literary agent passed on my manuscript. If you are wondering how I am feeling about this I can sum it up in one word; PPPPPHHHHHBBBBLLLLTTTTT!!!

Yes it is a big, fat bummer, but thus is the life of any aspiring artist. The message she sent was that it was a great concept and an enjoyable read but she just didn't "connect with it." I don't really think that is something I can fix. I think this was more a situation of my book not really appealing to her personal taste in literature. Other than that she had positive things to say which is definitely a great thing. Now it's just a matter of getting it in the right hands.

Meanwhile progress is being made on EMBRACE OF THE CALL. I am roughly a quarter of the way through the first round of editing. It is shaping up well. A bit of foreshadowing; it has new characters, a new even more twisted villain, and a new love interest--or two. Are you trembling with antici............pation?


  1. Very excited for Embrace the Call! Hold your head up about the agent, it's NOT something you can fix!
