#ROW80 Rd 3, Wk 7, rpt 2

I’m very happy to announce I’m hours away from submitting my superhero novella so I can finally shut the hell up about it for a while.  I finished the first drafts of the synopsis and blurb last night.  The submission guidelines said two to five pages for the synopsis.  Dummy me, I forgot that page one was the cover sheet and the last page was where I had been staging my query letter.  So, I panicked when I came in at a solid six pages and immediately began slashing and burning.  When I realized my mistake, I was at three pages and change for the synopsis alone.  I suppose that’s not a bad thing, being succinct.

The best news I’m hours away from being able to report in full.  Suffice to say that the nibble I mentioned in my last post has turned into a huge BITE!  I’ll be announcing more and updating my goals in Wednesday’s report.

I withdrew my steampunk short story from the indie publisher for whom I had originally written it.  I submitted my piece instead to a steampunk anthology with a publisher that has purchased my work before.  Publisher B said no sim-subs but more importantly, I began to have serious doubts about the solvency of publisher A.  That was my cue to officially bow out once and for all.  I’d rather have it in a steampunk anthology than a thematic anthology anyway.  I plan to write more steampunk and this anthology would give me a more recognizable street cred.

My cumulative statistics are on my ROW80-3 page.

The Linky site lists other participants’ progress reports.  Give them some encouragement too.

  1. Congrats on finishing up the novella – bet it’ll be a relief to have it off your hands. And I’m keeping fingers and toes crossed that your good news on the PURE comes through! 🙂

I'm dying to know what you think?
