Waiting & Working on Another Story

Well, I’m gearing up to send out some queries on Story for a Shipwright, hopefully by the end of the month. Feedback from beta-readers have been trickling in, with one manuscript still out there—the one I’m most looking forward to. (No pressure there, Laura).

In the meantime, I’m preoccupying myself with my first viable novel, Girl Running. I ‘completed’ it a year ago, and have learned a great deal since then. So, why not apply all that learning to what I still consider a good story with great potential. The biggest challenge will be trimming nearly 50,000 words off 150,000 to better fit the Young Adult genre. Maybe I’ll just call it Commercial Fiction, instead.

I couldn’t wait to see it in print, and bound a few copies. Perhaps I’ll even post a few pages…


  1. Please do ... love to take a look.

  2. I agree with Scott -- do it, do it, do it! :) As for the binding, it looks fantastic. Incredible!

    I wish you the best of luck with the queries. I'm sure you'll have success!

  3. Hi, Bridget! No pressure indeed - harumph.

    Just kidding. I'm working on your manuscript this week - and I'm so excited! My apologies for the wait... my mom's visit was a 24/7 operation. But life is now back to normal. Yahoo!
