I took the next step. I started the agent queries. Maybe I’m jumping the gun here (That’s how I feel). However, every self-published author tells me that’s their one mistake: they didn’t get an agent right from the start. I’m taking care of that now. And right in time for Christmas! *insert sarcasm* Not the best time to inquire, but it is what it is. NERVE-RACKING!
People are starting to finish their beta reads and things are looking good. Getting LOTS of positive feedback. The only negative (and this is only from me…so far) is it’s too long! Agents are going to see that number, the magic 169,000 words! and say, “Oh, hell no!” I’ll wait and see. I’m still going to publish as is, but if I have to, I’m going to have to cut 40,000 words. Noo!!!
