Post-Julno, Days 9-31: August’s Roller Coaster Ride

Sorry I haven’t been on in the past few weeks. Between computer problems, I haven’t been on much. But this has been a roller coaster of the month. Three weeks ago, I’ve gotten a partial request from one agent for Venom. He said it was right up his alley, as I was continuing to work hard to make Venom better. A week later, he said the writing wasn’t impressed by him. On that same week, I’ve gotten a full request from another agent. Since then, I’ve gotten two new beta readers who are helping me out making Venom shine. I won’t be sending that full out until later next month. I’ve revamped four chapters so far. I’ve been sending out new queries out. Yesterday, I’ve gotten a partial request from a new agent who asked for 50 pages in a PDF/Word document. She said it’s not something she’s interested in, but with my sample 10 pages (chapter 1), she said it was well-written. She also asked, if I have plans for more Kylie Marx adventures. That stumped me. So I’ll be sending my partial out later this week. As for blurb requests, I’ve sent out three–one came back recently as of no, due to time constraints. I hope to resend my new Venom to the same people I’ve asked for blurbs last year and to one new author real soon. I hope to finish Venom’s final edits by October and Specimen by Halloween or earlier, Double Exposure by the end of the year. Yes, I’ll be doing Muse 2011. I hope to go back to updating here (and my blog) more often. Here’s my word counts for the past three weeks and such:
