I’ve been having some minor blog guilt because I know I’m slacking on cool, new posts (sorry!) BUT I do have a few neat things to share today. Soon, I’ll have some book reviews (because, yay! I’ve been reading more) up, too. But today I just want to update you on a few things.
-My publisher Penner is interested in Weightless. It doesn’t mean they’ll take it, but I’m excited that the premise was intriguing enough. So far, I’ve sent a few chapters and the synopsis. I’d be grateful for some good vibes. I really love this story and I think it deserves an audience.
-I’m back on to the querying game for Witch Lessons! Partly fun, partly brutal, I’m starting out again with a pretty good responses. I’ve gotten some rejections but I also have a partial and a full out right now. So that’s sweet. Another batch is going to go out next week so fingers crossed. I really have had a good feeling about this ms for a long time. I love it, and I hope others will, also.
-As for poetry news, I got an acceptance for SIX poems from a really kick-ass place. I’m still waiting to hear that they’ve received my email accepting their acceptance (ha) so I don’t want to shout it from the rooftops yet because I’m still a little afraid it won’t happen. But still, so far so good?
–Beach Glass & Other Broken Things is almost here! Can you believe it? Because I sure can’t! Don’t forget to sign up for the Goodreads giveaway. There’s still plenty of time left to enter and win a signed copy plus an engraved piece of beach glass. Right now I’m just reading through the last proof to make sure all is good on the paperback front, and then that’s it. I can sit back and enjoy my book birthday in a few weeks!
-Deja You: Stories of Second Chances, my BookBesties collaboration is also almost here. We just ordered our proofs and they arrived today, and they are gorg. Now we need to read through and make sure there’s no errors or anything, and then that will be on the way to publication (May 30th). We’ll also be doing a giveaway for that, so stay tuned.
-Fireflies & Fairy Dust. The anthology I’m helping out with is now re-opened for submissions. Please check it out here.
I think that’s it. Besides the mess that is my personal life right now (a happy mess, but still, a mess, thank you house reno), that’s all. Work at the library is going well, family is good, and I am anxiously awaiting completing some of the projects above so that I can get back to the writing. Damn, do I miss it.
Take care, guys. Enjoy the upcoming weekend!
