I am thrilled to announce I am on page 247 [of 338] of the final draft of WENTZEL FARM. This is still a working title [used to be WOODALL FARM]. The real title, which I've managed to keep secret, will be on my queries.
I love this story every bit as much as SMOKE.
Haven't heard anything on SMOKE. Can't even remember the last time I received a rejection letter. Either my queries have all fallen through a crack in the universe, or they've been set aside for consideration, or...?
I've lost a lot of sleep over WENTZEL FARM. For the past three weeks, I've gotten up in the middle of the night, every night, and worked on it for several hours. I also worked on it for an hour or so before going to work. Another couple of hours after returning home.
If everything goes according to plan, queries will be sent out this weekend.
