Soon, I will begin my new research into literary agents, the submission process, and taking an in-depth look at a particular agency I will probably be submitting my first novel to. A literary surprise will be released here on T.W.N. this month (fingers crossed). Further updates are forthcoming. E.W.
While I am still querying agents for my first novel, I'm also considering releasing the poetry book through another medium. My goal is still to be traditionally published, as there truly is no such thing as "self-publishing". In my spare time, I've also discovered other educational resources which I will share at a future… Continue reading Lit. Update: S.D., Mystery, Poetry, and Publishing Options

As fellow writers will know, the submission process can be daunting and time consuming. I have been keeping track of the dates of my various submissions and am also in the process of investigating alternative publishing platforms - specifically for the poetry book.

Update: Cozy Mystery Novel
On Superlative Deviation.
Recently it’s been crazy here. My family has endured some unexpected issues and demolition in our home, but things are much more quiet now. I hope to be able to post a little more regularly soon. I apologize for not posting new content as promised, but life happens. Isn’t it great!
As previously mentioned, new updates on my writing projects are being posted on T.W.N. A new one will be out this coming Tuesday. I also plan to post one or two fun things to S.D. on the same day. As the days get a little hectic, I’m trying to get organized again. I have made several changes to the running of the blog and my author site which should help greatly. You might also notice some editing of my bio and other information, as well.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope everyone is doing well.
