Home Again, Home Again

Classes are over for the semester, and I'm home! Huzzah! Tomorrow, I start work at the library.

I've been doing an edit-really-more-of-a-rewrite of Lord of the Dark Downs, but I've decided to pause on that when I get to the end of my current chapter in order to do a polishing edit on The Dogwatchers so that I can start querying it. This was a little tough to decide, because I would ordinarily plan to let a recently-finished manuscript sit for longer before doing the last-call edit and querying. The Dogwatchers has been finished for just over three months (got done at 3:08 AM January 30), so it's had a little while, but the main impetus for my deciding to go back to it now is that I realize none of my novels are currently making the rounds. It's always good to have something out there.

Besides this, I feel The Dogwatchers is at least as pitchable as Rabbit and Cougar and much more so than Lord of the Dark Downs. (I don't really know how to write a query for a novel with an ensemble cast.)

So, coming soon: editing! (And for those of you who are Becky, probably taking you up on your offer to read The Dogwatchers once it is edited. Thanks!)
