Thought it'd be interesting to share on the journey what comes AFTER the contract offer. So, as I find out new things, I'll share them here.
Heard from my editor. Can I tell you how exciting THAT is? Wow, I'm so happy to be working with her. Her reputation precedes her and I'm ready to learn from her experience. Anywhooya, I got my art fact sheet, which is basically what I fill out to give input into my book cover. EXCITING! Of course I had to include a short (200-300) synopsis which encapsulated the main plot points. Well, y'all know me, PANIC! So I did what any writer in my situation would do....I called Camy and whined. Bless her dearly, she got it done for me and so quick, too. So, the art fact sheet is sent in.
We'll be changing the title of the story. We'll keep Bayou in it, but the burning really didn't pull in the hook/draw of the book. So, I came up with some alternate title suggestions and sent to my editor. Hopefully, one of them will work for her.
So that's it so far. Except I should be working on book two except my plot keeps falling apart on me. SIGH. Guess my excitement is carrying over into my brain cells. I'll just keep brainstorming it until something hits and I know that's "it".
