For those who follow me and know about my novel TSK- Lethao it’s been a whilr-wind of a few months, from beta to finalising a draft, to finding someone who I could work with and trust to do a good copy edit.
Well today I got my copy edit back. I am thrilled. (even though I know nothing about punctuation and grammar) I am totally sure it will make all the difference to those that do. I could not be more proud of where this book has come. I’m sure people will still hate it, but that just comes with writing in general…
So my plan now, is to work through all these edits, the odd comment and things, to send it back for formatting and then to query.
I’ve been working on a pitch and query while waiting to get the MS back, and I have to admit it is the hardest thing to write EVER! I mean I’ve never had problems with loglines, with writing letters, but this. It is defeating me.
I’m researching all the possible people I can send out an email too but all I’m getting back from the crit sites, Scrib and Agent Query connect is conflicting advice and comments, I know that it doesn’t matter so much in 100k and everyone will have an opinion. But in less than 300 words it’s driving me insane.
My next few weeks are planned, between keeping my commitments going and in achieving my goal of having a pitch perfect query. Anyone with any other tidbits of advice, please drop me a line.
