Writing & Editing Like Mad. Harper Voyager Taking Unsolicited Manuscripts.

By | Publishing, Writing Tips | 4 Comments

So this is going to be a very short post because I need to get back to my manuscript, but suffice it to say I am very excited. Not too long ago I found out the Harper Voyager is accepting unsolicited manuscripts from Oct 1- Oct 14, 2012. (Which starts today! :D)

I made the decision that I would submit. But this meant that I needed to go back and rework all those things I wanted to adjust after great feedback from the workshop I went to in Aug. (see here) I also need to add about 10,000 words because they state it has to be at least 70,000 but prefer 80-120,000. I’ve done some serious editing but I’m sitting at about 60,000 words right now so I might possibly even have to add 20,000 words. A daunting task to say the least.

This opportunity is unprecedented (as far as I know) and I am so happy I can be a part of it. Here’s to all the other writers out there! Keep on keeping on. And WRITE!

Sent Off First Half of ‘Lasera’ to Beta Readers

So after staying up till 4am last night I sent off the first half of my 2nd draft to my beta readers. I’ll be sending the second half in the next two days. I’m very glad I was able to do so and that I have such good beta readers. Slowly the process is getting finished! My next deadline is to have sent off my query letters by August 11th.
