I’ll be at the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Conference on Sept 20-22. I’ll get to pitch my book to an agent, see if I can pick one up. I believe that will probably be the impetus to polish On the Shores of a Dark Sea off.
The funny thing is it’s all written in my head, but getting it on paper in an orderly fashion is a huge deal. Organizing half a million characters into something that not only makes sense, but is appealing is quite the task. Especially for someone like me who is far more visionary than functional. 😉
I will also get my work critiqued by a couple of editors/agents as well. I’m not going to say I’m excited about that, because it will probably be painful. But it will be educational.
I’m going to have the same work critiqued at both sessions, I think, just to see if they come up with the same result.
