This past week was huge for me. Not only did I meet my goal of bringing the word count of The Empire's Edge up to 80K (the minimum size desired by most publishers), but I submitted a query package to TOR/Forge, mailing it off on Saturday.
Wish me luck! I should hear within 6 months.
The first draft of this book, which I finished four or five years ago, held a mere 45K. I began writing this book in April 2003, so it's about time this baby got out the door.
My first real novel. Wow.
Now to write another or three...
