The Writing Resolutes ~ February Check-In

Well, so far so good this year. Yesterday, I completed a second draft of book four (Me & Johnny) of the series I’ve been writing, Human Touch.

Not Human Torch, nor is it Johnny Storm related, purely coincidental…

I somewhat apologize for my ridiculous puns.

Not really.

Anyway, I am so happy it’s complete. Then someone was so kind to print, comment, make notes, and check edits of the newest, best, and last edition of Human Touch (which I swear auto-correct on the new laptop is worse than auto-correct on my old laptop). I finished that out yesterday, too. Two stories done, ish. Still waiting for others to comment or notate on that one, because I might have missed something else or I like to have a consensus…

The problem I have is what to do with it once the final/final is done. Wattpad always sits in my head as one of the top options. Self-pub? Maybe. I’ve also been considering doing podcasts with it…as in the whole freaking series! (Over nine books either written or planned at this point.) Something along the lines of Welcome to Nightvale! But, those microphones can be expensive. And I’ll have to find a place to record along with people to play the parts. That last one would be the easiest thing to accomplish on that short list.

On the agent front, Love, Darrows is still with an agent. Not sure if I should poke and prod for info there or not. I don’t want to be pushy, but at the same time, it’s been months since she’s responded to me…

Sync or Swim is being edited and prepped to send to an agent who has said they wanted my next contemporary LGBTQ book…so fingers crossed that I get it done and off soon.

In the meantime, I am always searching (BIG THANKS TO kiTT FOR POINTING OUT PUB OPPORTUNITIES) for the next submission…

So far this year, I might not have gotten my foot in the door yet, but I feel like I am getting stories done. Which is always a good thing to someone in the authoring process. IMO.

ISO: Agent for a YA Romance with a Paranormal Twist.

She’s fun and quirky. Hasn’t been on the market for long. She’s a love story first and foremost. A ghost tale–but not in a scary sense–secondly. Maybe a love triangle in some ways.

Her story is unique. She mixes the now (2010s) with the then (1980s). I didn’t realize how many things had changed until I sat down and made some comparisons. Whoa. There are elements of yin and yang. She has a hint of mythology about her to whet your curiosity. You might think she’s a little occult at times, but her religious references sort of round everything out.

Her drama stares at you with green-hazel eyes. Her love embraces you with a warm hug. Her laughs will brighten your day. She’s a fun girl with a few major issues, but don’t let that stop you. She’s worth a read.

This is my long, poetic, odd way of saying that my YA novel, Human Touch, is now and forever complete… and on her way to queries.
