A couple of weeks ago I submitted my novel, ‘Blindsided‘, to 5 agents. I upped my game this time and hired the services of an editor BEFOREHAND for a critique of the whole novel, to copy-edit the first 3 chapters and help with the synopsis and cover letter.
Overall I’m well happy this submission package is a lot better than the previous 2 I’ve sent out in the past purely because I’ve had an editor work with me on it. Comparing what I’ve put together for Blindsided with my 2 previous novels plus the fact I think this novel has more commercial appeal means I’m giving it my very best shot.
Also, because my previous 2 novels were speculative fiction and this current one is more of a contemporary novel, I’m also looking for different agents which makes the searching a little more interesting and also widens the net a little.
So now I’m in a little dead zone between finishing one novel and starting another. A welcome break until I crack open a brand new notebook and start thinking about what to write next. I’m going to catch up on some reading this month and maybe do some more blog posts if I can think of anything remotely interesting to write about, whilst I try to await responses from agents, patiently.
