While this whole month is dedicated to Nanowrimo (which I am an active participant this year), last week I decided to throw caution to the wind, end an eight-year drought for submissions and submit my new book project to HarperCollins for consideration.
The book (The Death Dealer and The Orb of Truth) is about 55% complete. I have 94,577 words on it so far and would’ve had more, but…there’s been a lot going on for the past couple of weeks (my suspension from Watt Pad being one of them).
In the next two weeks, I’ll be working on my bell-ringing job for the Salvation Army again like I did last year, bringing in a fresh infusion of cash and much needed book money.
Next year–at this time–I plan on contacting a book cover artist and asking her to do a book cover for Codename: Velocity.
But as I’ve been telling people, nothing will be published as of yet. That may be a long while into the future, but at least some of the work will be done.
