As usual, I am late in posting but for a good reason. I have been seriously busy writing my latest novel, Starting Over. Since my last posting, I managed another run through of Cache Under the Stacks and set a goal of finding an editor to look it over before handing it off to beta readers. Finally, I intend to shop it to agents and if no one takes a nibble, will probably go the self-publishing route by year’s end. I have hoped to traditionally publish Cache, but I am well aware of the marketplace. It puzzles me when I hear of what publishers are looking for. Most of which are not in my genre. But I know there are readers out there for Cache: I just have to find them.
This writing business is much harder than I had ever expected. It is so much more than just sitting down to write. There are many steps to writing a book that leads a writer to the pinnacle of completion. Putting it all together to make your work shine is hard but doable but not for the impatient. I tell myself to have patience and take it one day at a time, and I know the outcome is worth working towards.
