#ROW80 Rd 3, Wk 8, rpt 1

Great week for me so far!

I announced on Monday that my novel, The PURE, has been picked up by J Taylor Publishing for an April 2012 release!!! (see prior blog post for more details)

Last night, I submitted my superhero novella to Samhain Publishing.

I stumbled across a YA pitch contest open to the first 50 commenters on the blog so I figured, what the hell, and posted a one sentence blurb crafted in two minutes and my first 250 words.  Low expectations on that one but you never know.

The steampunk story publisher A (from whom I withdrew my story) emailed back and said it was a good story and they wished me well to find a new home for it.  I hope so.  Publisher B has had it a few days.  Cross your fingers I made the right choice to pull it and try to place it elsewhere.

So, I’ve updated my goals and added two new ones:  Edit The PURE per my publisher’s guidelines AND write a Christmas short story for possible submission to Evernight.

Tonight, I think I’ll do NO writing or editing AT ALL!  Just watch television and read.  I think I deserve a short break if only for one night.

My cumulative statistics are on my ROW80-3 page.

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

  1. Congratulations on getting picked up. Exciting!

    Everyone deserves a night off now and then, especially after good news like that.

    It looks like you do a great job of keeping your goals liquid enough to remain achievable and challenging. Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you, Matt. It was tempting to just say DONE! but that’s not the point of ROW80. Plus my publisher reads my blog and if I hadn’t added “edit The PURE”, I’m sure I’d have heard about it. LOL

    • Thanks, Claudia! I did watch and read…but I also wrote a little too, messed around with my blog…it’s like I can’t stay out of that chair, monitor on, etc. LOL Habit–for better or worse.
