Okay, I haven’t found an agent yet, but my pitch did make the first cut for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Probably they canned Story for a Shipwright last year because I pitched it as Women’s Fiction—go figure. This year, I called it General Fiction—“a character driven exploration of our needs versus wants in a world where ordinary converges with extraordinary.”
So, now I have to stave off nausea till the next cut.
Meanwhile, I'm going to paint up a storm...
...and congratulations to Julie Dao and Tiffany Neal, who also entered and made it throught the first round!
