Last Thursday, March 5, marked the one year anniversary for sending the Perceval manuscript to the literary agent who requested it. I mailed another follow-up letter to him this past Monday, noting that real-life conditions today echo what Evan experienced in his childhood. An interesting angle for selling it to editors….
It’s been tough to wait. Especially tough to wait when there’s been no communication at all from the agent. I remain hopeful that despite the economic troubles we’re having, we’ve come through the worst of it and we’ll begin to see some positive indicators. I’m noticing already that the list of job postings has gotten longer at Publishers Marketplace.
In a related effort, I’ve completed a list of possible markets for the novel excerpt, The Shadow. I need to research the most likely ones further before submitting the story to any of them. I’ve targeted this week to complete the research.
