Happily Editing

Yesterday I picked up my manuscript I’ll be pitching to an agent in April at the RWA NEC conference. To be honest I haven’t looked at this book in almost two years. I did read/edit six pages a few weeks ago, but my heart wasn’t in it, so I put it aside.
Yesterday was different. I’m in a different mindset. I got through the first ten pages required for the agent. As I’ve mentioned before the agent will read these pages prior to the meeting. So I have to sit down and write the synopsis and a query letter to grab her attention and make her want more. What I found is I really LOVE this book. I’m excited about editing the rest and getting it ready for my agent appointment. And hey, if she isn’t interested I’m sure I can find a publisher who will want to buy it.
So while I await second round edits for All or Nothing and first round for Just Another Rainy Day I’ll be working hard on this non-erotic book. :o)
Happy Wednesday!

  2. Im so excited that your new venture is non-erotic - whats the saying: 'Variety is the spice of life'? lol ~ My new one is non-erotic too, just straight romance ~ it feels good to write something different.

    I know your pitch will be a success and I wish I could be with you at NEC ~ I attended several years ago, and what fun we RIRW gals had!

    Keep us posted on this new project and much good luck~
