The Doors Are Open

For Angry Robot submissions that is.

I'm halfway through the first round of revisions for Forgotten Angel, the manuscript I want to submit this month. At least that's the working title. Otherwise, I call it the Zaphkiel Project. Usually I don't have a problem with titles but this time I'm, as Grimm would say, "Flummoxed."

Forgotten Angel is my longest work so far. I used to joke I would never write a story over 50k. The original draft of this one came to 102k and has since been whittled down to 94k or thereabouts. Yeah, when I say I slice and dice my work, I wasn't kidding. 

While it would be nice if AR sent me a contract (fingers crossed), I'll also compile a list of other publishers to submit to. Meantime, it's back to these edits.

That's if I don't get sidetracked by this shiny new story idea that keeps demanding my attention...

I submitted yesterday. Handed the book over to a friend of mine as well, who's going to beta it before I start the agent mill again.
