Every once in a while, I like to give an update on my various projects and other authorly things that have been getting my attention lately. So, here you go: the latest What Have I Been Working On? post.
In a previous update, I wrote that I was planning to pitch to a handful of literary agents and editors at Emerald City Writers Conference, in October. Well, I did that–and my favorite agent (the one I was most excited to pitch to) asked to read the first 100 pages of my manuscript! So I sent that to her lickedy split. Eight weeks later, she asked to read the rest of the manuscript! *happy dance!* I sent that a couple of weeks ago, and now I’m playing the waiting game. *nail biting* So while I wait, I’ve been outlining book 2 in the series, and idea-gathering book 3.
Beyond that project, I’ve been working on the Newsletter (I’ve hit a snag with that, but I haven’t given up yet! So far it’s still on schedule. Stay tuned for updates) and blog posts, as well as website updates, and updating my profile pic on my various social media channels. You know, virtual housekeeping.
Finally, I’ve been reading Fifty Shades Darker and tweeting about it, with hashtag #ElleReadsFiftyShades, as discussed last week. I’m having a seriously good time with the whole thing. Though I haven’t been able to read every night, I do get to log at least an hour most nights. Plus, I’m pretty certain I’m enjoying the book more because I’m tweeting about it, so that’s an added bonus. It’s been awesome to see all your reactions to my tweets, and to read your responses, so keep ’em coming!
Until next week!
