So, what new update will I share?
I have finished a novel that I am under contract to have published!That's right: I have signed a contract with Azoth Khem Publishing to have one of my stories published.
I have just put the final words down in the file
Now, I just have to go through and make sure I left no holes and match the happenings from one chapter to the next. Originally, I submitted the story with 18,500 words, plus or minus, and left it with a cliffhanger ending. I had thoughts of writing a series.
As per their guidelines, a novella needed to be at least 30,000 words, so when I found the Editor, Kasey Dawn Hill needed a little time to get to it. I decided to try to get some more words down to get closer to what they wanted.
Now, I have just under 60,000 words, and have made what I consider a satisfying (to me, anyway) ending for it.
So, when I get done scanning through it, I'll send the updated file in and we'll see how it goes. If nothing else, I have given them up to 20,000 word leeway to slice and dice the heck out of it.
I'll try to post a followup here when I get a decision, or a final Publish date and links when I have them available.
