Now Playing Tracks

I sent a collection of queries today! I’m very proud of myself. 

For anyone hoping to publish a book, queries and rejections can be really scary, but I want to remind you all that you can’t sell something no one has seen, and it’s possible for agents to like your work and not want to represent it. I need to remind myself, as I shoot emails into the aether, that a rejection is the elimination of one of ten million options. I should be grateful for rejections, because that’s one more email I won’t have to send again… at least until Ghosts of Whitehall is finished :) 

An airing out period

Hello friends and Threadcaster fans. Sorry I’ve been so quiet around here. I’ve been giving the book a little shelf time while I distance myself in prep for my final edit and a return to the query track! 

My new project is a novel called “Ghosts of Whitehall”, a ghost hunting story from the ghost’s point of view! 

I’ll update you all about the project more later, for now here’s a picture of my main character!

The Earth Curse by jameson9101322

This is one of my favorite pictures of Peter! I am really proud of the way I posed him to show off his height and his thick limbs and also the ground, since he’s turning to stone. I’ve been away from Threadcaster for a few weeks now, and I’m getting a little homesick for my poor characters. Peter here will always be my buddy, I hope he’ll find a way to everyone else’s hearts some day.

Free Proof Print Copy is in my hand! 
… it’s much thinner than I expected. I guess that’s what I get from 90,000 words. 
Hopefully it’s a vision of things to come, when I get an actual proof copy of it actually coming out for sale from an actual publisher… until then I can sleep with it under my pillow.

I’m upset because although I feel strongly for these people, I can’t help but compare my characters to the books all around me. Will they ever stack up to such heavy competition? Will they ever have champions or be someone’s favorite? This is what I think about as I pen down emotions… is all this authentic enough to properly read?

Sketchvember — OC Challenge - Day 6: Will
Will is an Earth Curse from my fantasy novel, Threadcaster. If you can believe it, this kid is only 14 years old. The Earth Curse makes the bones and tissues calcify, swelling up, getting hard, and turning to stone. Will, as a person, is remarkably upbeat for what he is, he is in better shape than a lot of his friends and neighbors, and believes everyone is born to serve a purpose. With purpose he has value, and he sees the value in everyone, because he can see the strengths that they bring to the table.
