I’ve started testing the agent waters for my book, Pantomime. You can read a blurb and the first chapter here, if you’re interested. So far it’s been getting quite a positive response and going better than I expected.
So now I’m trying to figure out what to do while I wait. I’ve started poking at the sequel –the plot is fairly nailed down and I have nearly 5,000 words. I’ve also been fiddling about with my adult novel that features the same protagonist as Pantomime, Micah Grey. It was actually the book I started first, but then I decided to write a “short story” about my character’s childhood and got a little carried away. It spiraled into a YA trilogy. Oops. I’ve also got a few short stories knocking about in my head. But I can’t figure out which I should focus on, and so progress has been scattered.
Otherwise, I’m still researching magicians and Victorian medicine and getting twitchy whenever I see I have a new email notification.
