BIG ASS NEWS: MY MANUSCRIPT (tentatively titled BLOOD AND BULLETS) WAS PURCHASED BY KENSINGTON PUBLISHING IN A THREE BOOK DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Needless to say I am over the frakking moon.
I am going to be a published author!!!! Hells to the yes!
So you will be seeing a lot more of me on here because now I am legit! (I know I was legit before. If you write, actually write, then you are a writer.)
You will see three books about my character Deacon Chalk…Occult Bounty-Hunter and all around monster fighting badass. The first one is tentatively scheduled for release in January of 2012 with the following two coming at 9 month intervals.
Strangely enough I am doing this without the help of an agent.
Not for lack of want. I queried many, many agents and all said no despite a lot of interest. Even after I had an offer and contract IN HAND I was unable to secure an agent. So I am walking on by myself. I would love to have an agent, a good one at least. But for some reason, it is not in the cards right now. Oh well. The contract is pretty standard with standard stuff. No huge advances, but advances nonetheless. I am happy with what I have so far.
But take my example to heart. KEEP WRITING. KEEP QUERYING. KEEP SUBMITTING. KEEP REVISING.
You can make it all happen.
