So, I’ve decided to put the writing of [C] on a halt for now. I’ve been having a hard time writing on this novel, and my daily word counts are nothing to write home about. Continue reading
Today I queried 6 agents for [TEE], after putting off continuing to query for too damn long. It took a couple of hours (I’m all about the checking of attachments, double-checking, triple-checking, freaking out, because OMG you didn’t add page numbering, YOU IDIOT!), but I feel good about it.
I’ve spent most of my time editing my WIP’s, but I’ve also started writing a fourth novel [C]. I was actually plotting a campfire story [E] (I still don’t know whether it’s going to be a novel or a novella at this point), but I got stuck.
Well, first things first: I sent the second draft of my NaNoWriMo2015 novel [OSAA] to two of my beta readers around the last few days of 2016, and sent it to another beta reader on the 22nd of January 2017. I’m hoping to get their feedback around March, though I’ve not given them a hard deadline.

PC Peter Grant is a young English policeman who, after an encounter with a ghost, is recruited into a ‘secret’ branch of the Metropolitan police that deals only with magical cases.
