Very grateful to announce that “Tread,” my short fiction, will be published in Saturday Night Reader, a Canadian journal.
Although the agent has too much on her plate right now, an encouraging rejection from one of the UK’s biggest lit agencies, which noted that my submission stood out from the others, sits well with me. Thank you, Karolina.
It was a very good year for work:
**Finish first novel
**Submit first novel to agents
**Write at least 5 short stories
**Submit short stories to 100 journals
**Start second novel
Here’s to those of you who supported me. Hold on: 2015 will be bigger.
After nearly a month, edits to my novel are now complete, and I am ahead of schedule. Next up: finding its home with an agent and a publishing house. Thank you to my readers for your feedback and, most importantly, your time.
My new novel has been sent to my trusty band of readers. Onward.
My new novel is written. 555 pages. Now it's time for editing and revising.
