I am very pleased to report that I have finished the first draft of my second novel, Of Ravens and Lambs. It has been bittersweet seeing so much of the racial violence in the news reflected in the story I'm writing. This is certainly a timely story, and one that I hope will give readers something to cheer about in a time of darkness.
Now, of course, comes the difficult task of editing and re-writing. I only have three weeks until school starts, so I'm racing against the clock!
The other tedious and soul crushing task, contacting literary agents and publishers, also begins soon. Piling up rejections is tough to take in stride, but I have learned it's just another part of the writing experience. I believe I have written a great story...it just takes patience to find the right match in an agent and/or publisher!
