Last weekend I went off to Write On Vancouver with my wife and took some excellent classes from Michael Hauge on story and screen writing. Before attending I wrote off to the editor and agent that I’d pitched my first fantasy novel to at the Surrey International Writer’s Conference in Surrey last October. I hadn’t heard from either and I wanted to pitch this fantasy novel, Fioniur’s Mural, to an editor at Write On Vancouver. I also wanted to pitch a paranormal romance,Taming the Tides. I got confirmation from the agent that she wasn’t interested, but heard nothing from the editor before the conference, so I went ahead and pitched both manuscripts to an editor and she asked me to send in both manuscripts. Great news. I’ve been polishing the romance novel all week, getting it ready to send out, when today I got an e mail from the original editor I sent the fantasy novel to, saying that she’d never received it, and could I send it again. So it looks like I’m still in the running there. Meanwhile I’m getting the second books in both trilogies written. This is turning into a productive year for writing.
