The manuscript of my novel, Artifact of the Dawn, was returned to me from my proofreader and I finally put the finishing touches on the novel. There may be some future tweaking depending on what feedback I get from potential literary agents or publishers, but for now, I’m calling it good.
It’s been a 2-year long labor of love, writing and editing this novel. I’ve had a lot of fun getting to know my protagonists while I was writing them.
Now I am on the next leg of my journey and preparing what I need in order to try and solicit representation from a literary agent. Many require a synopsis of the plot, which I have been working on. I also need to craft a well-written query letter. Then I will begin sending out queries in the hopes at least one agency finds an interest in me.
If somehow I don’t find an agency interested in my novel, my next plan is to find a publisher on my own. This will more likely be smaller, lesser known publishers. If all else fails, then I will move forward and self-publish the novel.
I have an entire series planned, and I hope to get started on the next novel as soon as I’ve gotten the publishing of the first one sorted.
Wish me luck!
