A couple quick things:
One, I've finally gotten over my fear of submitting things to the prying eyes of my readers and have some things to share with you all that I'm putting the finishing touches on. I've submitted one piece, and the rest will follow throughout the week as I finish polishing them.
Two, I've been promoted at my job. I'm now a full-time title insurance assistant, with a wage I can live on.
Three, I've got a novel. Mostly. I finished a manuscript, realized most of it didn't fit together the way I wanted, scrapped the bits I didn't like, and now I'm putting it back together again in a much more cohesive form that works a lot better. Like most of my works, it's fantasy and romance, which are my strong suits. It's the story of a woman named Aria finding her place in the world when everything she thought she knew about it and herself turns out to be a convenient lie. It's the most fun I've had writing a story, and I hope you'll all enjoy it just as much. I'm currently in talks with an agent who likes the story concept and my writing style, and I've been recommended a professional editor if I want one, but I'd rather do it myself. I'll let you all know if a publishing house picks it up, and if one does you should all tell me where I should travel to while I'm promoting it. England, my homeland, is at the top of the list, but I want to roam the states as well. Also Canada. Suggestions are welcomed so I can start daydreaming about meeting my fans and signing books for them.
