Here We Go Again: Novel Two
As it should be. I want every novel to be better than the last, to always be improving. Also, if I didn't feel like this novel was going to be just as good or better, why waist my time with it? So yeah, I'm excited. George will always be my baby. I have just as much confidence in him as I did before, and I want more than anything to have The Keeper be my first novel published and out there in the world. Still querying, still hoping and praying for the best with that one. And quickly. The sooner the better.
And starting novel two. This one is going to be different from The Keeper in many ways. This novel will be Young Adult, staring a fourteen year old girl rather than a forty year old man. Her name is Olivia. She has a sister named Ruth, and they are on a road trip with a few other people. That's all I'm going to say for now. But I'm excited.
I do have a working title, but I'm not going to let that go at this point. I've become pretty superstitious about how much I say before the piece is finished. But I'll keep you guys posted.
Tell me about your current projects. Are you submitting? Finishing? Beginning? Slogging through the muddy middle?
