Unrepresented

With the slicing cut of his broadsword (Okay it was really just an email) the intrepid author severed his ties with his agent and agency. In one fell swoop he became that anathema the publishing elite call…the Unrepresented!

Yes, I felt it was time to take back control of my writing. While I believe Saritza is a great agent, we were just not meshing as a team. I wish her and her clients all the best, and there is certainly no hard feelings. I am grateful she accepted me as a client in the first place.

Having said that, I am glad to be back in control of my writing and have begun to look at my older work with an eye on revision and sending it out to publishers myself. My first project will be There’s no such thing as Werewolves, the first book in the Demon Gate saga. If I can get this puppy sold I’ll have Templars gate ready for a follow up.

Can I do this by myself? Time will tell.

Stay tuned…

The season of writing

Wow, it’s been a while since I updated this blog. Really sorry about that. The good news is that I’ve done quite a bit of writing in that time. I recently completed and submitted a superhero romance entitled Cheetah and Zoom: A very fast romance. I also packaged up and sent out my novel, Son of Thunder, to the RWA Golden Heart contest.

I have recently joined the RWA, the WisRWA , the WRA and a wonderful writers group out of Eagle River, WI. So I’ve started my networking as well.

Two weeks ago I got my contract from Circlet Press, signed it and sent it off, so I’m looking forward to my first payment as a professional author. (I get giddy just thinking about it)

Recently I’ve gone back to writing my fantasy novel, Amulet of the Fallen God. I’m making great progress hitting the 55,000 word mark in the projected 90,000-110,000 word manuscript. I feel my characters are strong and my storyline compelling…but that’s just me. I’m looking forward to getting it somewhat finished and sending it out to my beta readers for their input.

Snow is falling today here in Tomahawk which means I am entering the Season of Writing. Winter means less distractions and more face time with my computer. My plan is to finish my fantasy novel and to write a completely new romance before the spring thaw. That is unless I get a sale or some other project takes me by surprise.

Okay, enough for now. Back to writing.
