New Direction

Well, after thinking about it for a few days I think I’m going to have to rewrite at least the first 5 or so pages of Dreamer’s Sea. I’m kind of bummed out about it, but seriously, those first pages are a little slow. Generally, with my shorter manuscripts, I jump right into the center of things, but I thought I’d give myself a more gradual build up. So I have a feeling I’m going to be looking at a blank screen for a while. But I’ll push past it. I always do.

I’m still sitting on my Harlequin query and synopsis. I’m nearly to the point where I’ll look for a US based publisher just to avoid having to find an international reply coupon. Maybe Kensington would be interested. They apparently work with Samhain as well, so maybe the association would help me out, get my foot in the door.

But there’s something about being published by Harlequin. It was something I really wanted when I started writing. Everyone has heard of Harlequin, afterall. But maybe it’s time to look in a new direction. Broaden my horizons. Look at all the possibilities.

I’m also rethinking the fantasy I started eons ago. I’ve wanted to write this one for, oh, 17 years or so. Maybe, once I get a few other projects finished, it’ll be time to sink myself into it for real.

Yikes, time to get ready for work. But it’s been so slow there. At least I can think about writing.

  1. Ceri,Sorry you’re having trouble. I thought it was stupid I had to go to two post offices but at least the second one was able to take care of it. Don’t give up and you can submit to both Kensington and HQ. It’s not like you’re submitting a full to both of them.I emailed a query to Kensington editor and now wish I had sent a partial snail mail. Maybe my email got lost in cyper space. I’m sure she’d asked for chapters by now had she received it. LOL Happy writing to you!

  2. FWIW John is the only one I’ve ever heard of responding to e-queries. Not that the others don’t–but I know for a fact he *usually* does since friends of mine have queried him…something to keep in mind if you don’t hear back from Audrey in a fairly reasonable amt of time.
