Good morning everyone. First, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who commented on my WRITE THE NEXT LINE Blogfest hosted by Christine Danek. It was such a great experience to write someone who was as creepy as a Stephen King character. Stretching my wings, as it were.
Anyway, I've been lurking around the blogosphere, trying to keep up because I'm just a news-bag that way. I don't read or comment everyday but I've been around.
I found these two posts which I think you should go look at pronto.
Samuel Park has given us a list of publishers that accept unsolicited ms. And some of them are very surprising. If you're having no luck finding an agent, perhaps you could try one of these publishers. Go take a look, you won't be sorry because I learned a LOT just by reading about them.
And if you don't know about Elizabeth Spann Craig and her Twitterific Sunday posts, OMG, you must go now. She has also compiled the lists into a writer's database where you can find all her tweets. It's a fantastic resource and I know you won't be disappointed. She's got EVERYTHING there.
And Monster Child has a loose tooth. Her first. She's so excited. I'm afraid I can't even look at it. And she insists on showing it to me every chance she gets. Now THAT creeps me out. Funny, I can look at blood and gore, I can deal with poop of all kinds, vomit doesn't faze me. Show me a loose wiggly tooth and I get sceeved out so bad with the oogies I run away and hide. Which she thinks is funnier than all get-out. She chases me around the house. Do you see now why I call her Monster?
So, that's all. I'm kind of digging this hiatus and really want to keep off the blogs for another few weeks. What I'd really like to do is get the first draft for Ellis & Violet finished before I come back. But you know me. I have so much to say I'm sure I'll be back long before then.
Tell me, what have you been doing? Do you miss me yet?
