This was lying demurely folded in a box of photographs. It is not the first manuscript I copyrighted. That honor goes to a Heroic Fantasy Trilogy that is so utterly silly, it will never see print. Besides, I'd have to retype it.
This one has some sentimental and 'lessons learned' associations. It was the first manuscript I sent around for representation, and I worked for a year with one agent (a very good one) polishing it. Ultimately, he turned it down and I went with another agent who wanted to represent me. www.pred-ed.com did not exist then.
|Amazing what you find in boxes.|
25 years ago for the copyright on this. And boy was it bad!
It's pretty good now, and Book II is coming along very well. Book III is nearly ready to go this very moment.
I have the three covers designed.
...And now back to writing... (and staying away from boxes)
