A New Start

It's August, well of course since it is 99 degrees Fahrenheit outside with a heat index.  I moved in this heat yesterday and I'm now getting settled into my new apartment, which has carpet.  It's a strange thing to be excited about, but my other apartment only had cheap linoleum that you couldn't even sit on because it felt like cement under your butt.  I'm sitting at my parent's house because my internet isn't hooked up yet.  But I thought I would do a quick writing update.

I am still waiting to hear back from the agent that is reading my manuscript.  It's been about a month and a half.  I hopefully will hear back from her this month, which I'm a little nervous about, but I'm excited to hear her opinion about the writing and if she would still like to represent me.  Hopefully her team will be as impressed as they were with my book proposal.

Since I have finished writing "The Secret", I was wondering if anyone wanted to read it.  It's very rough, but I want someone's opinion on the story, things that could be improved, or if someone just wants to read it and let me know if it's any good... I'd like two or three people to read it.  Is anyone willing?


How are your projects going? :)  Is it as hot where you live?

  1. I'd be willing to give your story a read :o) I don't have the time to do a page-by-page critique or anything, but I'd be more than happy to beta read and give you some general feedback at the end. My email is angelavcook(at)gmail(dot)com

  4. We've had heat indexes in the 100s for the last week here in Kentucky. I'd like to read The Secret. I can't promise that I'll be able to reply super fast or in great detail, but I can at least give you a general impression and a head's up on anything that stands out to me (good or bad).
