Month: June 2017


I really wonder why agents act like they’re the be all and end all of publishing? Of course, it’s not ALL agents. I just closed out a bunch of queries after they hit the 90 day mark. Sure, I might still hear back on some of them, but at that point it’s unlikely. I happened to… Read More ›

Today is my mother’s birthday. To my knowledge, she’s still alive. This is the first year I’m deliberately not calling her though. I just can’t.
