Greetings, dear readers! Just a quick update to let you know what is going on.
1: I am still agent hunting. Or, better said, agent researching. Some authors, publishers, and even agents I emailed for information haven't responded. I emailed them all several weeks ago, so I think it's time to buckle down and decide if I want to spend the energy on the agents, even though I don't know much about them.
Another reason I haven't been vigorously pursuing agents lately is because I have been thinking about the alternate ways of publication. Two publishers in particular have caught my eye: Creation House and Marcher Lord Press. I am thinking I should email some of the authors that have worked with these publishers and ask for their opinions. What do you think about small publishers like these?
2: I asked several other authors to read my manuscript, and a few of them agreed! Whoopee! I do not have permission to release their names, and it may be a while before they are finished reading it, but I am praising God for these opportunities! (Writers, if you are looking for endorsements, see my post "How to Get a Book Endorsement.")
3: I've been tagged by Madeline at The Stuff I Throw Under My Bed. The rule of the tag is to list eight books you would like to live in for a week, then tag eight people. So, here goes:
Book 1: The Magician's Nephew (C. S. Lewis). I would love to watch the world of Narnia come into being. And talking to Aslan wouldn't be so bad, either (hee hee).
Book 2: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Jules Verne). Hey, Captain Nemo, can I please drive your ship? Just once?
Book 3: DragonQuest (Donita K. Paul). Minor dragons rule.
Book 4: The Lord of the Rings (J. R. R. Tolkien). By the time one week was over in this book, I would have enough of walking and battles to last me for... oh, about forever.
Book 5: The Black Cauldron (Lloyd Alexander). Never, ever judge a book by its movie. Ever.
Book 6: Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz (L. Frank Baum). Oz is one step above Wonderland in insanity, admittedly, but I think I could survive it for a week.
Book 7: Tears of a Dragon (Bryan Davis). Let's skip chapter 19, shall we?
Book 8: North! Or Be Eaten (Andrew Peterson). Beware the nameless evil named Gnag!
Now to tag eight people. I will comment on your blogs to let you know if you are tagged.
Seth, The Narrowing Road
Squeaks, Hidden Doorways
Araken, Writer's Passion
Macey, A Girl's Journey
Izori, Evening Stars
Silver Angel, Silver Angel's Musings
Galadriel, The Wordsmith's Shelf
Alright, well, if you've made it this far, you have more patience than I have. So much for a "quick update." lol
