I have finally crossed that threshold in my writing path and submitted my first novel to a publisher.  The envelope is stuffed with “Stealing the Wolf Prince” and mailed!  EEK!  Now the worst part of it all, I have to wait.  In the mean time, I think that I will seek out other publishers and set up subsequent submissions.  Although I’m a chronic optimist, I’m also a realist and know the likelihood of my first submission being accepted isn’t favorable.  Either way, go me!

I can no longer say that writing is a hobby.  Not with a novel complete and out in the publishing meat grinder.  Ya’ll know that I’ll keep you up to speed on everything as I experience this journey.  I’m an open book, no pun intended.  Well, maybe just a little pun.

I go back to my desk job next Tuesday.  I’m happy that I was able to get so much accomplished on my leave.  Assuming I have any free time once I’m back at work, I think that I will start to edit the sequel, “Thieving the Bandit Lord”.  That should keep me occupied while I wait.  I don’t want to lose momentum or be the one to get in my way.
