Mission Accomplished

The check, I mean the manuscript, is in the mail! :) Yes, I finally submitted my manuscript! This is the one that took only 7 weeks to write. Of course, it took me almost 2 months to revise it! LOL But part of the reason was because it came out 2000 words too long. I had to do some major cutting.

At least it's finished. And I wrote the synopsis in about two days--which is like torture! I think from now on I'll write it as I go so I don't forget the order in which things happened. :) As I wrote this book, I also had other ideas for the secondary characters. So maybe they'll have their own stories someday, too.

If all goes well, maybe I'll be able to report a second sale soon!! Prayers would be appreciated.

Looking ahead, I'll be having a couple of guest bloggers/interviews soon. Check back for an interview with Julie Lessman in the coming weeks!

Congrats, Missy! I'm looking forward to the writer retreat! Can't wait. Of course, my boss doesn't know I plan to take off.

Will be praying about the second sale!

Glad to hear your manuscript is out the door! I'm sure you'll have a second sale under your belt real soon! :-)

Missy, this is great news. I certainly hope and pray this book is published real soon.
Warren has been trying to get me to write a book. He seems to think since I have read SO many mysteries I should be able to write one!!! I don't know...maybe I'll give it a try.
Thanks for dropping by my blog for a visit and I'm glad you got to see our beautiful FIRST grand child.
Take care, I hope to get to see you soon. Many blessings!
