I’ve received a few emails recently asking about my novel. It’s still there! I set it aside for a couple months so I could work on selling my sixth non-fiction title.
It’s a really fun book – another crafty lifestyle theme. With the help of my fabulous agent Jonathan, I reworked the proposal over several times over so it would be a fantastic AND fun book. It was very stressful in an exciting kind of way. My proposal got the green light on Friday and it goes up for sale this week. Cross your fingers for me!
As far as the novel, I’m going to dive back into it next month. I have to add one major component, and then trim out close to 100 pages. Luckily, I have a reader (my friend Kathya who goes through a novel a week!) soaking it up line by line right now. It’s so hard for me to choose which parts to cut back, so Kathya is going to give me her advice since she is a pro on the topic. It felt good to leave that book alone for a while, because now I’m antsy to get back on it. I’ve already had a dream that I saw it for sale on the bookshelves. I had the same kind of dream about my very first craft book. I know in my gut it’s all going to work out and the sooner I get on it, the sooner it will manifest.
And on that note, I’m going to try and get some sleep.
