More fun with Threadcaster, Cat’s hair, and falling… 

It’s like the most likely deadly version of the birth of Adam. 

Journal Update

I’m still waiting on four queries and a and a manuscript review. Waiting is hard. This week, I was compelled to return to sequel possibilities. I’ve got a lot of ideas for adventures in the world of Threadcaster with both returning characters and completely different characters. There’s enough fertile ground to feed a whole discworld-type series, and that’s actually my goal. I can dream… wish me luck! I’ll keep you all informed!

Threadcaster: The Cast
And this isn’t even all of them!  
Threadcaster is my fantasy novel, currently running the Query circuit. I hope to get it published one of these days :) Wish me luck!
Cat is a teenage girl living a sheltered life far at the edge of her small, desolate land. Her best friend Peter is and Earth Curse — a teenager unfortunately turning to stone from the inside out. The condition’s fatal, but when the magic-using Brushcasters come to their town, Cat’s afraid she’s going to lose Peter sooner than she expected. The two leave to find safety, but instead find themselves on a quest to ransom back the Valley’s absent God and put an end to the Curses for good. Cat must lead a group of Curses to the four corners of her world, and use the Brushcasters’ own magic against them — armed with nothing but a loop of string. 
From left to right: Cat, Peter, Lynn, Joshua, Ildri, Aiden, Zephyr, Will, Paige, and Trace. I’m so anxious about this querying thing that I’ve poured my energy into portraits.

More threadcaster to give me courage and strength!

Submitting a novel is very exciting, but conflicting as well. 
One thing I know for certain, is that I’m TOTALLY into Threadcaster again. I am in love with these characters, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I hope all this uncertainty leads to an exciting outcome where lots of other people will get a chance to fall in love with them like I do.
I know there’s a lot of work ahead, if this step succeeds, I’m looking at revisions and galley edits… changes will have to be made and I only hope they’re not too demanding. 
Expect perhaps some more Threadcaster art while I’m waiting to hear back! I’m always open to Threadcaster asks and submisions as well if anyone out there is curious about the book, its world, or its characters!

Times like these, I definitely need a big Earth Curse hug.

Submission away! I’m very excited to share my novel with new people, but its frightening as well. I know this is a step I must take on a journey of my own. I’ll keep everyone informed of Threadcaster’s progress, thank you all for supporting me so far — you’ve all been amazing! Earth Curse Hugs for everyone!

It’s my birthday so I’ll draw what I want to, which today is TONS of Cat and Peter cuddles :)

Today was a fantastic day! I hope to report more about Threadcaster adventures later, but for now know that all the love and attention I’ve given to Threadcaster this summer is actually paying off! I had a wonderful Threadcaster themed birthday complete with cuddle pictures. 

jenniferstolzer:

I sent another query tonight. Queries are frightening — you send something you love dearly out into a world nearly guaranteed to reject it. Getting interest in a book is a prize akin to winning the lottery. Did you buy that ticket at the right store on the right day at the right time? Peter here hopes so… let’s all hope so.

I’ve been back at the Threadcaster grindstone temporarily while I begin querying again. I’m super nervous about querying my work because so much rides on putting the book in front of the right people. When I stress out, I make art… so here’s Cat floating… or.. something.

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.
