Turning Things Around

2015-04-15T13:02:06-06:00April 15th, 2015|Agents, Conferences, Inspiration, Personal, Pikes Peak Writers|

I've hesitated making this post for a while. I received some good news today that changed my mind about posting this, so here it is.... I've been down on myself for a good number of months now as far as my writing goes. I've faced some emotional challenges. I've battled [...]

Obligatory 2014 Recap

Wow. What a year. Ups. Downs. Even some sideways curves thrown in. I'm not going to go through every, gritty little detail and bore you to death. Here are some highlights of the year for me! The year started out with a bang as the government decided it wanted back taxes [...]

I'm not participating in NaNoWriMo this year. It's not because I don't believe in the process of encouraging writers. It's because I have different plans this year! I've decided to submit Warmaiden to one agent or editor each day in the month of November. I'm calling this National Novel Submission [...]

Who’s That Handsome Fella?

Who's the handsome fella? No. Not the one on the left. That's me. I'm far from handsome. I'm talking about the guy on the right. Well, it's Donald Maass. If you're not sure who he is, then do some Googling. You'll probably find out that he's one of [...]

Sitting with Donald Maass

2012-03-26T08:00:39-06:00March 26th, 2012|Agents, Pikes Peak Writers|

I held the second highest bid for a seat with Donald Maass at the Thursday night dinner at the 2012 Pikes Peak Writers Conference! This means I'll be sitting on the right-hand side of one of the greatest agents in the game today. I can't wait to meet the man [...]

First Rejection of 2011

2011-01-14T20:29:02-07:00January 14th, 2011|Agents, Rejections|

It only took a week from the moment of query to the moment of rejection. *sigh* While I'm bummed out as I really would love to work with this agent, I'm going to keep on keepin' on and see what happens next. I think my next stop will be Barnes [...]

First Query of 2011

2011-01-07T16:39:48-07:00January 7th, 2011|Agents|

I just sent out my first query of 2011. The agent's web site states that there is about a four week delay in hearing back. At least I know I'll hear back from this one instead of having it "black hole" into nothingness. That's reassuring. I hope that answer is [...]

Fastest (and Shortest) Rejection Thus Far

2010-12-30T11:36:48-07:00December 30th, 2010|Agents, Rejections|

The query that I sent off on Christmas Day was rejected last night. That's a four day turn around time. That's fantastic for an agent where some of them (through no fault of their own due to their ever-increasing workload) are required to make writers wait weeks or months. I'm [...]
