I cannot believe it has been over a month since my last update!
So, how goes my search for an agent? Slowly. This past week has seen more progress than the previous four, I think.
Let's see, I told you about the book, Christian Writers' Market Guide. This month I've been reading through the agents section. As I went through the lists, I looked specifically for agents who are seeking new writers (like me) and books in the sci-fi or fantasy genres (like my book). I narrowed down about nine agents. Yesterday, I emailed four authors about one of the agents. One of the authors replied already, and it looks promising. One agent down, eight more to research. *sigh*
I'm afraid my book has taken the backseat lately. Necessarily, though. I've only been able to pursue agents on the weekends, for the most part.
I bet most writers do not have as much trouble finding an agent. But I am picky. I do not want to end up with someone less than helpful. I am seeking someone who will be able to help me understand the steps of writing and publishing, who will listen to my ideas, and give me wise council. And I would love it if he or she is a Believer.
But I am beginning to wonder if this person exists. Oh, well. I am praying God will lead me to the right one.
On a lighter note, I have been writing on this blog for half a year, now. I am amazed and excited by all the "traffic" it has seen! As of today, there are 32 followers! I never would have thought so many people would take an interest in my blog. So, thank you, reader, for being a part of my journey. Your encouragement is such a blessing!
And thank You, God, for guiding me and blessing me on my way.
