So, I have been considering the next step, the difficult step... The one that is a heck of a lot harder than just writing the dumb thing and work shopping it... Getting it published.
The plan is, as of right now:
- Finish the book this weekend (Argh!)
- Workshop (I am hoping I can foist it on some friends for some good feedback)
- Write a query letter (ugh)
- Send out query letters (blah)
- Hope for results.
Which means, in about a week, all of my anxiety can be focused on the query letter (I'll worry about the workshop business after I get some feedback). I hate bragging about myself, and I have no idea how to sell anything to anyone, much less a story.
Anyone have any suggestions? Know any agents who are DYING to get their hands on an epic fantasy? Publishers looking for fresh meat? If so... send them my way, and I will send you a box of kitchen sink cookies!
