Hello everyone ! Thanks for stopping by. This is my blog for my book:
I’m Not Crazy Just Bipolar
I’m done (well done with my fourth…or is it fifth???) draft for now but getting ready to work on it yet again before I start submitting. Stay tuned. I’m anxious to search for an agent but as they say: ” we make no wine before it’s time.” Didn’t some vineyard say that? Anyways…
The first weekend in December, Heather Lennon and I (from Locust Point Publishing) trekked into the city for the 21st Annual Indie & Small Press Book Fair. We had worked together on my manuscript – she’s an amazing editor with great vision especially for new writers like myself. We met up with another new writer on the scene, Kim Sillen Gledhill who is also in the refining manuscript stage and looking for representation.
It was my first look into the book industry outside of the few people I know in it. Although I didn’t get to meet with any acquisition editors as I had hoped, I did sent manuscript samples back with a few interns. We shall see.
An amazing speaker and author, David Henry Sterry who wrote the book Master of Ceremonies and Chicken (which Showtime is currently adapting into a series) spoke and was very entertaining. He will be giving me a consult but I am waiting until I am happier with my manuscript and until I get to read his book. I cannot wait but I must because I have to finish tweaking mine first. I am excited to meet him one on one and get his perspective and constructive criticism. He is also a talent scout so maybe he would know an agent….. In any case it’s giving me a bit of a deadline to get myself in gear.
