I am extremely excited to keep you updated with my progress in the quest to get a book published. I have had offers from more than one publisher! Now it’s a matter of choosing which one will be the best one for the job. It’s a tough decision to make. I’ll let you know when I’ve signed on with the publisher I choose.
In the mean time, I got to be a guest on a film podcast that goes in depth into a movie. I chose “Children of Men” (2006) and Doug Ferguson and I talk about it for an hour. If you want to check it out, listen to it here.
I really love Children of Men; it’s one of my favourite films. Nerding out with someone else who loves it was a real treat. If you haven’t seen the film, there are spoilers in the podcast, but we do say “spoiler alert” before things get spoilery.
Here’s the trailer for the film if you are wondering if you are interested:
But after hearing Doug and I talk about it like we do, how could you not be interested in it!
I’ll keep you posted regarding upcoming publishing excitement.
I am extremely pleased to announce that I have signed on with Beth Campbell over at BookEnds. She will be representing my novel Sleep Over.
It has finally happened. I have an agent.
I have been waiting to say those words for a long, long time.
Beth has just switched over to helming the representation of scifi and fantasy over at BookEnds. She wants an author who isn’t just a flash in the pan. She loves my manuscript, and my head is still swilling from all the gorgeous things she is saying about my writing.
And the writer’s head grew three sizes that day hahaha.
I won’t be able to share too much about the process of finding a publisher as it’s happening (super secret stuff), but you can bet your butt you’ll hear it loud and clear when I have signed with a publisher for Sleep Over. My only hope is that it takes a bit of time, as that’s a good sign that more than one really, really wants it.
Meanwhile, I will keep on posting for you, my dear, dear readers. I am so glad you could be here with me when I was finally able to give this good news! Your support has meant so much to me over the years as I continue on this wonderful journey to authordom.
I will continue to share a great many and varied things with you. Including, if you’re interested in the details, How I Got a Literary Agent.
In addition to my fantastic announcement, here are some more things just! for! yooou!!!
Episode 7 AND episode 8 of my Oddcast, Forgotten, are up! Episode 8 took the longest of all of them and had so many outtakes. I’m really pushing the form to the limit, and “the voices” really had a tough time of getting this one to work. It’s getting better as it goes along, and I’m really happy with where it’s heading!
We’ve also got more videos from my husband’s Wild Gears Creations channel. Are you ready to see something wild? This one is crazy!
And are you ready for parallel lines?
Something else fun: the tale of my Message in a Bottle which was answered by The X-Files (4 images in album- clicky).
Also, here’s a little comic I made about how I make coffee.
That’s all for now, dear readers.
I think we’ve entered into a new and exciting phase of my career here. I am one step closer to having a major work published, and hopefully soon I can share that with you too.
Now onto the latest from my Mathematical Husband, who is persisting on creating these mesmerizing and oddly satisfying pieces of art with his laser cut Wild Gears. This video shows him using a gear-in-a-gear-*in-a-gear*. Pretty impressive.
And now for another thing you can check out. Forgotten is my strange little audo project which I’m going to keep calling an Oddcast. I’ve just put up episode 5 for you, and it’s called “Choices”. We’re getting better at this.
