The last update I gave was the beginning of May, and a lot has happened since then in getting my YA novel – MAIDEN – ready for submission.
I have had two additional beta-readers go through and give (as always) wonderful feedback.
My critique group, the wonderful Richmond Children’s Writers, have helped me sharpen the first few chapters. I am forever indebted to them.
A good friend with an eye for editing has gone through and red-inked the bejeebers out of it, helping me condense and clarify.
And that’s where we are. In the next couple of days I will give to my wife for final ‘approval’ and then I have my first 5 agents in the queue.
Thanks to everyone for the support and continued encouragement. Dreams do come true, you just can’t give up on them!
